China is the country that most uses Twitter

is part of the 2600 sites that are blocked by the local government in China, following its policy of Internet censorship. Despite this, an analyst firm showed that this area is where the is more popular around the world, scoring a total of 35.5 million active users in the last three months just past.

In the list followed by India (33 million), U.S. (22.9 million) and Brazil (19.6 million), ranking below Mexico, the UK, Argentina and Spain. Note that “active users” refers to people who have used the service at least once during the past 30 days.
