Which are the countries in the world that use Twitter the most?
Beevolve have recently analysed 36 million Twitter profiles and have the answer for us.
You might be suprised to find that Ireland is in that top ranking.
I reached out to Beevolve for some further data on the Irish data and they advised me that the Irish Twitter population is slightly female biased with 48.8% of the profiles surveyed being from males and 51.1% being female as at the time of the survey October 2012. I would suggest that there ay be some discrepancies in that as not everyone adds a profile picture of themselves and unlike Facebook you do not need to state your gender on your profile. But it is a useful indication.
Their analysis is interesting and is worth reviewing – they comment that on average, a million active users have tweeted at least a billion times over the last 3 years and 25% of Twitter users have never tweeted.
