Israelis out-tweeted the rest of the world in professing their love on the social media site in 2013, Twitter revealed.

According to data released by Twitter for Valentine’s Day, Israel ranked first in tweets per million people expressing their love. Overall, 481 million tweets in 116 languages were sent in 2013 including the words “I love you.”

Israelis tweeted “I love you” (in Hebrew, ani ohev otcha/otach) in particularly high numbers on Saturdays in December, which featured a particularly nasty snow storm.

Behind Israel in the rankings came several European countries –Sweden, Norway, Spain, Hungary, the Netherlands and Greece — and then Middle Eastern neighbors Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates. The United States came in 26th overall.
