Our research shows us that:
- English is the most used language on Twitter. However, this is lower than the popularity of English on other platforms: e.g. more than 50% of websites all around the world are in English.
- Japanese is the 2nd most popular language on Twitter despite the fact that it is the 9th most spoken in the world.
- UPDATE: A more recent poll according to “Statista”, in 2018, the United States has the highest online population using Twitter followed by Japan, The United Kingdom and in forth place, Saudi Arabia.
