The World’s Largest Tweet Producers

An analysis of 20 percent of all geocoded tweets originating in different countries during a week-long period, between March 5 and 13, 2012—a sample size of 4.5 million tweets—indicated that the top six countries in terms of information production through Twitter are U.S., Brazil, Indonesia, U.K., Mexico, and Malaysia.
