Utah named fastest growing market for Twitter

Posted on January 8, 2011 by


A study released this week by Hubspot, a marketing software developer, has pegged the beehive state as the fastest growing market for Twitter. Utah Twitter usage for 2010 increased 66% faster than the national growth rate. The report states: “Utah experienced the largest increase of all states and is now 23% above the national average. This swift and substantial gain might have been due in part to Twitter opening a new data center in Salt Lake City.”

A few weeks ago the Hungry Hive did a study on how many people in Utah use Twitter. Salt Lake City has the highest number of users while Park City has the highest concentration. Overall though, less than 2% of the state’s adults are believed to be using the social network.

Have you noticed an increase of Twitter activity in the state? Do you think we will continue to grow?
