02 New Zealand the sixth most Twitterous country in the world, 129k users (or is it? See update)

Stats from Sysomos’ research on Twitter use show that New Zealand is the sixth most Twitterous (I made that word up) nation on Earth.

Twitterusers country Jun09 New Zealand the sixth most Twitterous country in the world, 129k users (or is it? See update)

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.

If you liked this post, you’ll probably enjoy other stats about social media in New Zealand (and these too). (You’re welcome!)

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.

      Data comes from http://www.sysomos.com/insidetwitter/, where they analysed over 11.5 million Twitter accounts. Perhaps Tauranga is only a tenth as Twitterous as the rest of New Zealand (given the demographics, I wouldn’t be surprised).
