At the end of 2018, Twitter accounted for an approximate 26 800 users in Mauritius. The social media platform is among the least used. Yet, there’s a lot to learn from the top 10 Mauritian profiles on how they lead.

Recently the State of Social Media in Mauritius pointed out that Twitter is set to gain market share, particularly for organisations and individuals willing to reach a global audience.

In this blog post, I am going to provide some interesting figures on how the Top 10 Mauritian profiles are using Twitter to maintain a global presence.

This analysis goes through 2000 random followers accounts of the main account and gives an indication of their “fakeness” using 25+ criteria. Below are my results for the 4 main criteria.
