Hashtag Nation



Ireland’s tweeting activity by location.

What on earth is happening in Louth?

John Cully writes:

“To look more closely at how Ireland is using Twitter, Bank of Ireland commissioned digital agency Eightytwenty to conduct research on all Irish Tweets that included location information. The results showed a dramatic difference in regional distribution: the people of Louth are six times more active on Twitter than Longford.Louth natives have been busy on Twitter topping the list by some distance with 6,688 tweets for every 1,000 people in the county followed by Waterford (5,096 tweets), Monaghan (4,530 tweets) and Dublin (4,461 tweets).”

    Those #longford yo-pros; extending battery life by disabling location services and laughing at the rest of us as they sip on their salted caramel mocha frappuccinos. #louth #louth #louth #louth #louth #louth

    Who’d’ve thunk it? No tweets at all from Tyrone. Or from Antrim. Nor Derry, Fermanagh, Armagh or Down. A gap in the tweetmart there? Then again, tweets, Tyrone?

    This would suggest that far more people from Louth choose to make their location public than in any other county. Shocking stuff.
