Welcome to the second & third State of the Winnipeg Twittersphere, my look at the intersection of Twitter and Winnipeg, MB. You can see January’s stats here. Since I completely missed posting the February stats last month, I have included some of them with the March stats.
For information on the data, definitions, and other background, click here.

# of local users: 4972
# of tweets by local users: 249553

Here are the numbers above in graphic form (combined with February’s numbers):

Some other interesting stats for the month:
- Just under 47% of all local tweets were posted between 9 AM and 5 PM.
- Local users posted roughly 5.6 tweets per minute in March, compared with 5.1 in February.
- The day with the most local tweets posted was March 30 at 9226. On average, 8051 local tweets were posted each day, compared with 7397 in February.
- Of the 85563 replies posted by local users this month, 17616 or 20.6% were to other local users.
- A total of 973 users posted 50 times or more in January. In comparison, 799 users posted just once.

I included three hashtags in the tagged stat this month – #winnipeg (the most common), #ywg, and #wpg. Even with all three, less than 1% of all local tweets posted were tagged! Compare that to Victoria, where over 9% of all local tweets posted were tagged.
You can see that February 28 was a record day for the number of tweets, as it was in all other Canadian cities, thanks to the gold medal hockey game and closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics.
