Social network Twitter is particularly popular in the United States, where as of October 2019, the microblogging service had 48.35 million active users. Japan and the United Kingdom were ranked second and third with 35.65 and 13.9 million users respectively.

Global Twitter usage

As of the first quarter of 2019, Twitter had 330 million global MAU. This represents a notable decline from the 336 million monthly active users in the first quarter of 2018. The most-followed Twitter accounts include celebrities such as Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and former U.S. president Barack Obama.

Twitter and politics

Twitter has become an increasingly relevant tool in domestic and international politics. The platform has become a way to promote policies and interact with citizens and other officials, and most world leaders and foreign ministries have an official Twitter account. Current U.S. president Donald Trump is known to be a prolific Twitter user, but opinions are divided on the appropriateness of his behavior on the platform. During an August 2018 survey, 61 percent of respondents stated that Trump's use of Twitter as President of the United States was inappropriate.
