Twitter was born in the U.S., but American users post just 30% of the tweets, a new study says.
As well, English accounts for less than 44% of tweets, down from 50% in February, says the study from the Paris-based data-analysis firm Semiocast. Researchers followed the Twitter habits of users between March 21 and March 28.
Japanese users accounted for 15% of messages worldwide and 95% of those tweets were in Japanese. Brazilian tweeters made up 12% of posts, while 10% of tweets came from Indonesia and 6% were from the U.K.
Canadian users accounted for about 1% of tweets.
