In baseball, having 3,000 career hits is almost a guarantee to entry into the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.

On Twitter, having 3,000 followers won’t get you into any Hall of Fame, but it is a milestone worth celebrating.

Having just reached 3,000, we would like to thank our followers and all those who retweet our tweets, spreading the good word about nuclear energy.

Part of the reason for a recent rise in new followers is our commitment to tweet what the people want.

By using social media tools, we have identified the themes that are popular with our followers and the best time of day to reach them.

At the moment, stories about nuclear power’s contribution to reducing GHGs, the growing number of environmentalists embracing nuclear and the fallout from Germany’s decision to close nuclear plants are very popular with our followers and are shared the most.

The CNA will continue to use Twitter to leverage more of its original brand journalism content and blogs on these themes and others. Expect more infographics in the future too.

Until we tweet again.
