Twitter is a U.S. company and the States has always been the platform’s rock, accounting for the biggest majority of its users and the most tweets. Indeed, new data from eMarketer reveals that almost 50 million people will use Twitter in the U.S. in 2014, which represents about 15 percent of the population.
Twitter was the world’s fastest-growing social platform last year, with the micro-blogging network’s 40 percent active user growth between Q2 and Q4 of 2012 more than enough to push Facebook and Google+ into second and third place respectively.
Twitter grew significantly in many countries, with active user gains of more than 50 percent in Hong Kong, Russia and China, but, after a couple of years of stagnation, it’s Twitter’s huge advance in the U.S. that is perhaps its most incredible feat to date.
Q&A specialists InboxQ analysed millions of Twitter profiles and determined that 66 per cent of all users have entered an actual, legitimate city in their Twitter profile.
And that other third? Well, they put all manner of quirky names as their location, including such gems as Pig’s Eye, Million Dollar Sand Bar and Shark City (and who wouldn’t want to live there?). And by matching these ‘places’ up with the user’s actual location, InboxQ have put together a fun infographic that takes a look at America according to Twitter.
