The digital agency has given a county by county breakdown for Twitter usage and Longford have found themselves at the bottom. With only 0.28% of tweets in Ireland coming from Longford, the county ranks way below everywhere else.

Unsurprisingly, Dublin and Cork ranked on top with 36.18% and 12.70% tweets respectively, but unexpectedly, Louth came third with 5.24%. Galway is way down on the list in 7th place and Limerick is 10th.

With over 600,000 active daily users on Twitter, eighttwenty estimated that there are 1,128 tweets per 1,000 Longford people. This is relatively low considering the average Twitter user tweets a couple of times daily.

Eighttwenty have speculated that a high level of emigration from the county could be the cause of the low usage as the majority of users are aged 15-35. Cavan, Roscommon and Leitrim also score low in the report.
