Note 1 - These are unofficial stats.  If you take Twitter's official statment that there are approx 140m active accounts, then there are approximately 70m Twitter users in the US, and over 20m in the UK.  Hmmm - UK figure looks too high (Population is 60m)
Note 2 - Lots of other stats in the full article
