Stats from Sysomos’ research on Twitter use show that New Zealand is the sixth most Twitterous (I made that word up) nation on Earth.
According to some quick maths by Nate, that means there are 129,000 Twitter accounts registered in New Zealand. And judging by the numbers of new followers from New Zealand, that’s growing every day.
But, as Duncan’s question pointed out, how many of those users are active? We don’t know.
But if you’re looking for influential Twitterers, check out Twitter Grader’s Twitter elite. It’s interesting that while we have a lot of Twitterers, according to the Sysomos research above, our quality is only 18th on the list.
Update: these numbers may be wrong. Sheldon pointed out some links that suggest the number of NZ Twitterers is more like 57,500. See his comment below.
