With more than three million active Twitter users, Saudi Arabia not only leads the Middle East, but, with a 300 percent year-on-year growth rate, actually ranks number one in the world as the fastest-growing Twitter nation.

Indeed, Saudi Arabia grew more than 3,000 percent between 2011 and 2012, and currently accounts for some 50 million tweets per month.

And it’s not just Twitter – with six million Facebook users and 90 million daily YouTube views, social media has become a very serious business in Saudi Arabia.
