Tokyo came close, creating 2.3 percent of all tweets. The nation as a whole has 29 million Twitter users.

When it comes to startups in the country, Indonesian humor site MalesBanget made it to the number one spot for the size of its local YouTube account. Besides cheering for celebrities Agnes Monica and Sherina Munaf, around 4.7 million Indonesian Twitter users read their astrology forecasts through @tweetramalan every day.
