Twitter Says it Has 10 Million Users In The UK [guardian.co.uk]
Twitter now has 10 million active users in the UK, out of 140 million worldwide, the company has revealed and 80%, an unusually high number, access it through mobile phones.

The data about the UK, revealed for the first time by the company, indicates that 8 million who logged in to the company's site in the past 30 days did so from a mobile phone, compared to Twitter's global average of 55%.



I assume they mean 10 million accounts.

I'd suspect if you checked with FourSquare you would find that the majority of those were probably also in a pub ;)

Unfortunately this does not account for faked/bot created accounts.

AFAIK there is no means to weed out faked from man-made accounts.
Although one of the bots characteristic is their capability to answer a tweet in a millisecond.
This combined with a few more bot "fingerprints" such as profile similitude and other suspicious feaures should allow to create a decent bot killer tool.

It also doesn't weed out the inactive accounts. A lot of people signed up to see what the fuss is about and then never tried it again.
