Who Twitters Most?

What cities Twitter the most? Sorry, NYC, but London, L.A., and Chicago are beating you.


Problem is, they glean that based on the 'Location' setting in Twitter. So if you have your Lat/Long in there, like many people with iPhones do, it doesn't count, to make no mention of people leaving it blank or putting something else in there for kicks.

Other problem: based on total number, not percentage of population (and then, instead of giving the friggin number, they give a "grade"?!).

Me sneaky Germans asks: Must NY not be on 1 (with Brooklyn on 21)?

I'm proud that Minneapolis beat Brooklyn. Now...where's Saint Paul?

People in NY (especially Brooklyn) are proudly not Twittering. There is better stuff to do, wherever you are.

The total number vs.percentage issue alesh points to makes this meaningless.

In related news, Los Angeles is dumb.

That should tell you something about Twitter, shouldn't it?

That's something NY should be proud of... I'm a Londoner and I'm ashamed that London is that high up.

God, don't people have jobs/more to do in their lives?
