Twitter Traffic Stats from Around the World

by on August 26th, 2009

Twitter’s traffic comes from SMS, Instant Message, Mobile Web, and all those wonderful API projects out there. However, Twitter also has good old-fashioned web traffic. 60% of web traffic comes from outside the United States and this chart shows the top ten non-US sources.


This is just web traffic. It doesn’t include any of the other popular ways that people use Twitter. For example, Australia ranks 6th if we look at SMS usage. We’d get altogether different numbers if we looked at instant messaging,, and API devices such as Twitterrific.
