Another school year’s started, and (probably by coincidence) the Royal Pingdom blog has presented what might be considered a long-term report card on Twitter.  The data shows, as a blog post explains, "how Twitter has been taking over the world."

The good people of Pingdom put together a few images based on Google search data, and a map of where Twitter was popular in 2006 displays nothing besides the United States in dark blue.  The rest of the globe hadn’t paid any statistically significant attention to the site.

Now the graphic’s looking quite different.  Twitter’s of interest to searchers in all sorts of places.  The top 10, according to Pingdom and Google, are the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Brazil, Ireland, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Trinidad and Tobago, and Singapore.

Finally, in addition to documenting these facts about the past and present state of things, the blog post issued an interesting prediction: "[I]t’s probably just a matter of time before other languages take off on Twitter."

So if you wouldn’t have already done so, look for dark blue to appear in even more far-flung corners of the 2010 map.
