While much is known about how Twitter is used for specific tasks or by particular groups of users, we understand surprisingly little about how the service is used generally on a daily basis. To learn more about general Twitter behaviour we perform a cluster analysis on a rich set of longitudinal interaction log data describing interactions 44 users had with the Twitter website over a 5 month period. We report on and interpret 5 clusters representing common usage patterns with the service.
