The number of Twitter users in the United Kingdom has more than doubled in the past two years, with a February 2013 poll from Kinetic Worldwide revealing that close to one third (28 percent) of all UK internet users are now active on the micro-blogging social platform, up from just over one in ten (13 percent) in February 2011.
Almost half (47 percent) of 18-24 year-old internet users maintain a Twitter profile in the UK, with 35-44 year-olds (33 percent) also well represented.
Twitter is well-established in the United Kingdom with some 80 percent of the country’s 10 million Twitter users accessing the platform via a mobile device.
UK users are also avid users of Twitter whilst watching television, commuting, shopping and even whilst in bed, and a new study has unveiled further insights into just how ingrained the micro-blogging platform has become within the British consciousness.
Of particular interest for marketers, the report revealed that almost one in every twenty-five tweets sent in the UK mention brands – equating to an incredible 12,600 tweets per minute – which is perhaps the greatest indication yet of Twitter’s growing value to modern business.
