With the latest news, new music releases and a look at what’s trending, Canadians stay up to date with their favourite artists on Twitter.
Twitter Canada took a dive into how Canadian music fans use Twitter, their favourite acts and who they love to follow on the platform.
In spring 2017, Twitter found out some interesting music facts: 96 per cent of Canadians on Twitter are interested in music, while 83 per cent of those enjoy different genres of music.
The study also found that on average most Canadians spent about 10 hours a week listening to music and the music is mostly consumed online.
