schon (31600) writes "Ipsos-Reid has a poll showing only 26% of internet-using Canadians are aware of Twitter, and only 6% say they use it. An article in a local dead-tree newspaper has Mark Laver (the study's author) quoted as saying "My gut was telling me Twitter was big and everybody was using it, but clearly that's not the case." As a Canuck who's tried Twitter and wondered what the big deal is, I'm wondering if this extrapolates to other countries? Is Twitter really as popular as the media is making it out to be, or is the reality much different?"
