Portuguese is the 3rd most tweeted language

More then 21 million tweets are sent in Portuguese via Twitter on a daily basis. That ranks Portuguese to the 3rd most tweeted language, and about as much as Spanish, Korean, Arabic & Thai together. These numbers come out from a study developed by the Paris-based agency Semiocast for October 2011. Semiocast has analysed a sample of 5.6 billion tweets dated from July 2010 to October 2011 revealing the top 10 languages used on Twitter.
Some other rankings could fairly assume for instance that Spanish speakers don't have so much to say on Twitter, Dutch are completely addicted to it and the Japanese don't do anything else.
