Washington: According to a new recearch who found an unexpected finding the Saudis are the world's largest users of the twitter and the Indians are the lowest tweeters on the microblogging site.
The PeerReach has found out that 32 per cent of the Saudi's online population are active monthly Twitter users while India, Nigeria and Germany seem to have very little to tweet with only one per cent of them are active Twitter users in each nation.
Interestingly 'Mashable' reported that US which is the home of the micro blogging platform ranks 8th on the list. The study considers active Twitter users to be those who tweet, rather than Twitter's metric of those who log in to the service,
Surprisingly Peer Reach has said that Saudi and Indonesia are two countries known for the fact that most internet users don't have a PC, but access the internet through mobile. The top five countries are non English speaking nations, with Saudi Arabia having over one third of active twitter users, PeerReach said on its website.
"Our graph with Twitter penetration numbers clearly shows a number of green fields for Twitter. In big countries like Nigeria,
Germany and India Twitter usage is still low," the study said.
China is not listed because Twitter is banned from China and therefore the Chinese microblogging platform Weibo has no competition. "Twitter users are young, on average 24 years. The average male is 26 years old, the average female 22 years old. Teenagers dominate Twitter. Only 20 per cent of the tweeps are older than 30," according to the study.
The top ten countries with highest active monthly users of Twitter are: 1 Saudi Arabia, 2 Indonesia, 3 Spain, 4 Venezuela, 5 Argentina, 6 UK, 7 Netherlands, 8 US, 9 Japan and 10 Colombia.
