Canadian Twitter Traffic vs. Facebook

Thursday, April 17th, 2008

I read somewhere today (I’ll track down a source) that Canadians supply only 4% of Twitter traffic compared to 40% in the US. My first question is whether or not that’s just web, or also API/SMS. Either way, it surprises me because Canada is known now as a social media early-adopter given the explosive growth of Facebook.

Why the huge difference? Is there something special about Facebook that appeals to Canadians? Or is there something specific about Twitter that doesn’t? Or did we just spend all of our social media capital in the Facebook boom?
