Information on the study and the methodology used, is described at the newly created site www.finnishtwitter.com

“75 recent tweets has been downloaded for every account, we analyzed the language after removing hashtags, links and user names. The language of the tweets are identified through the open source library Pear LanguageDetect. After an account has been identified as Finnish, all friends and followers of that account will be add to a queue to be analyzed. This process is iterated until all accounts (and there followers and friends, and their followers and friends, etc) have been scanned, and no more Finnish speaking accounts are found. Users not recognized as Finnish, accounts without tweets and protected accounts are excluded.”

Some sneak peak pictures has been released, showing high-level of Finnish Twitter users and details.
