How Africa Tweets

An interesting piece of research analysing tweets from Africa over the past three months is commented on today in the Guardian:

For me it was particularly helpful to be able to see that the two countries I’m focusing on (Nigeria and Kenya) are some of the continent’s ‘top tweeters’ – and that this perhaps has implications for the analysis I’m doing of the way social media is being used in these places to share, promote and comment on literary texts.

Although I haven’t done ALL the maths, I’m pretty sure if the figures were analysed alongside population Rwanda would actually be the country with the most tweeting going on or very close…
