Twitter es una red social de amplio uso a nivel mundial, caracterizada por suministrar información en tiempo real, permitiendo la interacción entre personas en relación con un tema en particular. El objetivo de esta investigación fue evaluar el uso de Twitter a nivel de Sudamérica, en las áreas de educación, marketing y política, en los últimos cinco años. Para procesar la información se emplearon las técnicas estadísticas: análisis Biplot, clúster y comparativo, mediante la técnica del Modelo Lineal General (GLM). Como resultado, se destaca que los países de Sudamérica que más utilizan Twitter en las áreas citadas son: Argentina, Brasil y Chile. Twitter tiene múltiples aplicaciones de gran utilidad en el área científica para la toma rápida de decisiones, lo que minimiza costos y maximiza la probabilidad de éxito en un objetivo dado.
