Ghana ranked 7th African country with highest X (Twitter) users

With active internet users of 24.06 million people as of January 2023, Ghana has ranked the seventh country in Africa with the highest X, formerly Twitter users, according to DataReporters.

The expansion of Twitter—now known as X—across Africa is evidence of the platform’s increasing power to transform the political and social climate of the region.

X has become a potent tool for promoting good change, fostering inclusivity, and accelerating African economic development.

Its influence has been enormous, from connecting people and encouraging citizen journalism to amplifying perspectives.

Industries have accelerated expansion by utilising the platform’s vast audiences, from digital campaigns and crowdsourcing projects to customer acquisition and business promotion.

Additionally, the platform makes it easier for talent development, information sharing, and access to international markets, enabling African inventors and entrepreneurs to prosper in the digital age.

X has also been an influential platform for events across the continent. It also serves as a news source for many online users.

Across the continent of Africa, it is difficult to talk about X without bringing up how important it is for fostering connections.

An excellent example of how Africans use social media to engage in amicable conversation and bond over their shared passion for sports such as the African Cup of Nations and the just-ended 13th African Games hosted in Accra.
