Liverpool top Premiership tweeting list for January

by | 9th, February 2011

An iffy start to the season might mean that the Premiership title is beyond Liverpool, but the Red half of Merseyside are at least top of one league – the country’s top footballing tweeters. Barclays has analysed Twitter traffic using Sysomos’ Media Analysis Platform (MAP) to see which teams and which cities were the centre of the Twitter-sphere throughout January, and found that when it comes to expressing themsleves in 140 charactars the Scousers come out top.

There was apparently a million tweets about the Barclays Premier League and its clubs in January with Liverpool FC, the subject of nearly a third of those tweets (301,169). In second place was Arsenal FC (110,901), which is something of a surprise given the club’s lack of transfer activity. Chelsea FC (97,655) and Manchester United (86,249) roll in as third and fourth place.
