Twitter is not just a social network platform to express yourself in 140 characters but also a tool to help you to become a part of the pulse of a nation. Today more than 275 million Twitter users are active from all over the world and are posting over 500 million tweets every 24 hours.
Total Twitter users in India are 33 Million and from this base 76% of users access it via their mobile phone, clearly more than 3.5 crore Internet savvy Indians are actively sharing their joy, pain, suffering and desire on Twitter.
Just think about it, a short 140 characters message which these 3.5 crore Indians share via Twitter can be described as an amalgamation of their emotions and their state of mind. What else can be a better way to understand India in 2014 than analyzing how Indians reacted on Twitter 🙂
