Just 5 Countries Account For 50% Of Twitter’s Active Users [STATS]

Just 5 Countries Account For 50% Of Twitter's Active Users [STATS]

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.

How important? This chart from Statista, which provides a demographic breakdown of Twitter’s user base, reveals that (all by themselves) Americans make up 24.3 percent of monthly active users (MAUs) on Twitter. Taking this a step further: collectively, the top 5 countries – the USA, Japan, Indonesia, the UK and Brazil – account for 50 percent of all MAUs.
