One Fifth Of UK Consumers Now Use Twitter, Rising To One Quarter By 2017 [STATS]

One Fifth Of UK Consumers Now Use Twitter, Rising To One Quarter By 2017 [STATS]

Twitter has always had a special relationship with the good people of the United Kingdom, particularly with those who live in London or who work in the media, but the numbers have never really reflected across the country as a whole, certainly compared to its great rival, Facebook.

That situation has changed somewhat in the last year or two, with many of my associates now active on the service (although still significantly less than Facebook), and this advance is reflected in new data from eMarketer, who estimate that more than one fifth (21.1 percent) of consumers in the UK will use Twitter in 2014, rising to one quarter by 2017.

Twitter was born mobile. Back in July 2006 when co-founder Jack Dorsey first envisioned and launched the service, Twitter was known as “twttr”, a name inspired by both Flickr and the five-character length of U.S. SMS short codes, and the site made heavy emphasis on the use of sending messages via text.

Fast-forward to the heady days of 2013, and Twitter is, well, everywhere, and a huge part of that growth has been because of the micro-blogging social network’s continuing presence in the mobile space. Indeed, some 80 percent of the 10 million Twitter users in the United Kingdom now access the platform via their mobile device, and two-thirds (67 percent) of these mobile users follow brands on Twitter.
