Yesterday we presented a visual that noted how the U.S. ranked only 8th in Twitter penetration by population, well behind first-placed Saudi Arabia.
However, there are far more internet users (and people) in the States than there are in the KSA, and the USA is comfortably Twitter’s most important region in terms of total number of active tweeters.
A new study has revealed that Twitter is the fastest-growing social network in the world, adding 40 percent more active users in 2012 to finish ahead of Facebook and the fast-climbing (but still oddly quiet) Google+.
This data comes courtesy of GlobalWebIndex, who have expanded on their findings in an updated post, which also reveals several changes in the way that people are using Twitter.
Earlier in the week we looked at data from Twitter that tracked the rise and fall of the volume of tweets mentioning the four leading GOP candidates – Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul – in the run up to Super Tuesday, which took place on March 6th.
With 10 states up for grabs, Twitter analyzed the conversation about the Republican contenders over the course of the day, and the results are in.
Twitter has played a big part in the run up to the 2012 US Presidential Elections, both as an outpost for prospective candidates, and also as a tracker that has mirrored the rise and fall of the potential Republican nominees.
Today is Super Tuesday, where some 410 delegates (almost 18 percent of the total) will be involved in contests in Georgia, Idaho, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia and Alaska. Convincing wins on this day typically propel candidates to the party nomination. So which of the four leading GOP contenders is in the best shape heading into Super Tuesday?
