Twitter clocks over half-billion users and Americans and Brazilians are the most connected: Monitor

PARIS (AFP) - Over 500 million people are on micro-blogging site Twitter and Americans and Brazilians are the most connected, according to a study by social media monitor Semiocast released on Monday. Twitter surpassed the half-billion mark at the end of June, with the United States accounting for both the most users and largest number of 'tweets' or short messages of no more than 140 characters posted on the site. The Paris-based monitor carried out the study by analysing data like time zone, geolocation and language available for the social networking site's total 517 million accounts. The United States (US) accounted for more than 141 million of Twitter users, with Brazil ranking second with 41 million after seeing its number rise by 23 per cent since the start of the year.
