All Londoners talk about is rain, football and the Underground, right? Well it may be how they’re perceived by the rest of the world, but there’s more to the conversation in the capital than assumed. Thanks to hoppa.com, we know the most popular words used among Londoners on Twitter, as well as the topics of hot conversation in nine of the world’s most popular cities. They analysed 1,000 tweets in each city to pinpoint the most descriptive words shared among those in each location, and the results are pretty telling. “Parliament”, “Brexit” and “UK” dominated tweets in London unsurprisingly, seconded by “taxes” and the “Thames”. The Tube also got a big nod in the city, along with “design”, “love” and the word “iconic”. Football star Lionel Messi dominated online conversation in the Catalonian city, with “restaurant”, “bar” and “urban” not far behind – proving downtime is very important to those in Barcelona. “Architecture” was also a favourite, and it’s no surprise given Barcelona is home to many of Antoni Gaudi’s masterpieces. “Fashion”, “proud” and “art” were popular words shared on social media in Milan, probably expected given the city’s reputation as the world capital for fashion and design. Tweets also revolved massively around “love, “sport” and “summer” too. Online discussion in Dubai concentrated mainly on “money” and “city”, with the words “entrepreneur” and “banking” solidifying the city’s focus on economics. Though there was a big shout out to “happiness”, “food” and the “mall”, in addition to the tallest structure in the world, the Burj Khalifa.
