Study Confirms US Dominance of Twitter

A study by Royal Pingdom, which looked through three weeks worth of tweets from 21 Oct - 11 Nov, confirms that Twitter is still very much a US dominated network.

The average number of tweets per hour showed a dip between 8am - 1pm Central European Time (or between 7am - Noon GMT), when Europeans get into work but still the middle of the night for the US.
