Twitter map shows the iPhone is the king of mobile tweets

40 sec read

Patently Apple shared a map this week that shows Twitter usage in New York and New Jersey broken down by smartphone device. The photo above clearly shows that the iPhone is the smartphone of choice in Manhattan, though there remains a small stronghold of financial types in Midtown who apparently remain beholden to Blackberry. Newark, meanwhile, is extremely Android-centric.

They say that a photo is worth a thousand words. This is a clear example proving that out. The map illustrated in our cover graphic was created by Mapbox. It clearly shows us just how hot the iPhone really is in the richest part of New York: Manhattan. The iPhone is king in Manhattan in stark contrast to Newark, New Jersey where incomes are substantially less. It’s an established fact that Apple’s iPhone is adopted by more in the higher-end of the market, but this classic map gives visual life to those stats. This map showing the locations of 280 million individual posts on Twitter shows a depressing divide in America: Tweets coming from Manhattan tend to come from iPhones. Tweets coming from Newark, N.J., tend to come from Android phones.
