Wikipedia has long become a standard source of informa-
tion on the web and as such is widely referenced on the
web and in social media. This paper analyzes the usage
of Wikipedia on Twitter by looking into languages used on
both platforms, content features of posted articles and re-
cent edits of those articles. The analysis is based on a set of
four million tweets and links these tweets to Wikipedia arti-
cles and their features to identify interesting relations. We
find that within English and Japanese tweets containing a
link to Wikipedia, 97% of the links lead to the English resp.
Japanese Wikipedia, whereas for other languages 20% of the
tweets contain a link to a Wikipedia of a different language.
Our results also indicate that the number of tweets about a
certain topic is not correlated to the number of recent edits
on the particular page at the time of sending the tweet.
