Edward Crook,an analyst at Brandwatch,said that many studies have shown that men and women use more similar language online than offline,so it was surprising to see such clear differences in the results

He added that 140 characters encourage many of the non-standard features of spoken language,which could explain this divide.

Crook said that it was clear that men and women both discussed different topics on Twitter and used different language to do



Overall,television and film was the most popular topic to tweet about,followed by sport,music and celebrities.

According to the report,the popularity of television as a Twitter topic fits in with the strategy the social network has been following recently.

The Brandwatch study also found that the brands most likely to be mentioned on Twitter were food and drink related,followed by clothing and accessories brands and technology brands.


The food and drink tweets were dominated by women,73 percent,as were the clothing and accessories tweets,89 percent.

The study found that 80 percent of technology-related tweets came from men.
