‘Romantic’ Kuwait ranked among 50 nations tweeting ‘I love you’
February 14, 2015, 4:12 pm

Just how vocal is Kuwait when it comes to internet users expressing affection, not bad, but could be better in cyberspace. A ranking released by Twitter on 13 February ranked Kuwait as number 3 in the Middle East in saying “I love you” on the social networking site, with the United Arab Emirates ranked in first place.

Worldwide, Sweden, Slovenia, Israel, United Arab Emirates and Norway were in the top five, while the United States and United Kingdom were placed at the bottom of the list at the 50th and 51st place respectively.

Globally though, Kuwait fairs less well on the affectionate scale — it ranked 24th, while UAE ranked 4th. The interactive map shows countries ranked by tweets mentioning “I love you” in over 100 different languages. Countries were ranked by tweets per million population in each place.

Among Asia-Pacific countries, Philippines, Malaysia and South Korea were ranked third, fourth and fifth respectively.
