As for the language in which tweets are produced, Arab tweets account for over 76% of all tweets in the Arab world. This represents a growth of over 10% in the number of Arabic tweets since March 2012.

Over 50% of tweets produced in other countries which have seen strong growth of users, such as Egypt the UAE, are also in Arabic. This growth also contributed to the 5% drop in English tweets • Source: Arab Social Media Report
