About 3 weeks ago, the following question was posed by a New Zealand based Twitter user:
Does anyone know where we can find NZ demographic stats on twitter users?? There must be somewhere?? #curious

I too became a bit curious and tried to hunt around for the answer but I couldn’t find anything useful and most of the responses to his question directed him towards good old Google which didn’t seem to come up with anything useful either.
I just came across some stats on the number of Kiwis signed up to various social networks (as at March 2013) that may be useful:
|Social Network||Number of users||Percentage of New Zealand’s Population (4,462,510)|
The number of Facebook users came as no surprise but I would have expected the number of Twitter users to be higher than the current 308,428. One inclusion on the list that made me chuckle was Bebo and I found it surprising that people actually still use it?
Do you have any other sources for New Zealand Social Media statistics?
