    ShareThis's quarterly report shows a bounce back for Twitter in the sharing department.

    Each quarter, the social sharing platform ShareThis releases a report that looks at the sharing landscape — data that the company says gives “insight into what, where and how consumers share online, which is not only a true indicator of interest and intent, but also a powerful way for publishers and advertisers to drive content and brand engagement.”

    For this most recent quarter, Q1 of 2014, the data from ShareThis gives particular insight into Twitter’s bounce back, how we share on mobile, and how race factors into the sharing ecosystem.

    "Mobile sharing grew 2.6x more than desktop in Q1."

    Below is an infographic from ShareThis that highlights some of the company’s findings from Q1 data.
