Fewer than 25% of Swedish web users are on Twitter

Monday 21 March 2016 | 12:47 CET | News
The Swedish internet foundation, IIS, said on the tenth anniversary of Twitter's launch that few people in Sweden use the social network. It said Swedish tweeters have nearly doubled in the past three years, but fewer than 25 percent of web users in the country are registered with Twitter and only 6 percent use it every day. It added that about 15 percent use it weekly. IIS' specialist internet statistician Pamela Davidsson said the low usage rate is something to bear in mind when reading media reports of 'Twitter storms'.
