You don't have to look further than the trending topics on Twitter to work out the service is dominated by Americans. However, Australia turns out to be a pretty large part of the Twittersphere, ranking at number 7 on the list of countries using Twitter and account for 2.39% of all active Twitter users.
We've made the case for why Twitter is useful, but given Australia's prominence, what is surprising is how long it has taken for features like SMS updates to become available. With that said, Australia has actually slipped down the rankings since the previous study, as more populous countries like Brazil and Germany become more Twitter-obsessed. Thanks Elly!
