As the story continues to unfold, Twitter shows no signs of losing interest in even the remotest of details about the first child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and, certainly in the UK at least, one study has suggested that this might be the biggest news story in the micro-blogging social network’s history.

Yesterday we looked at how discussion about the #RoyalBaby on Twitter had reached such a frenzy that it had even usurped tweets sent to and about the network’s most popular user, Justin Bieber.
Indeed, since the birth of the baby, and the reveal about the gender (it’s a boy, btw – you’re welcome), Bieber has been left even further in its dust. But which country has been most excited about the news?
Unless you’ve spent most of the day trapped under something heavy, you’ve probably heard that the Duchess of Cambridge is in labour. Catherine and William arrived at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, west London, at 6am GMT this morning, and the royal push is now well underway.
The couple have not announced the sex of the baby-to-be, but that hasn’t stopped Twitter speculating. Indeed, mentions of the royal baby have reached such a fever pitch over the past 24 hours that they’re even outpacing tweets sent to the micro-blogging social network’s reigning l’enfant terrible, Justin Bieber.
