Miami Is the Fourth Most Tweeting City in America, Top 20 Worldwide

There's a good chance you're an active Twitterer. Whether you're Tweeting because the club you're at is so boring there's nothing else to do, or because your're stuck in standstill traffic and decide to risk out a Tweet, Miamians like you Tweet a lot.

A recent study of geotagged Tweets sent this June shows that Miamians Tweet the fourth most of any city in America, and the 18th most of any city in the world. Which is impressive considering we're no where even close to being one of the most populous cities in America or in the world.

The numbers come from Semiocast, which analyzed geotagged Tweets (about 27 percent of total Tweets) sent in June 2012.

In the US, only people in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago sent more Tweets than Miamians. Jakarta, the the capitol of Indonesia with a metro population of 23 million, Tweets more than any city in the world.

Though the rankings do say they're taking "cities" into account, we'd have to guess they're analyzing all Tweets in Miami-Dade, if not the South Florida metro area.
