Twitter Tops 200 Million Monthly Active Users
Twitter recently topped 200 million monthly active users, according to a tweet by the company’s @twitter account – and is seeing 400 million tweets per day.
There are now more than 200M monthly active @twitter users. You are the pulse of the planet. We're grateful for your ongoing support!— Twitter (@twitter) December 18, 2012
This represents an increase of 42% in active users since last March, when the company announced that it had 140 million active users and 340 million tweets per day. Comparing this rate of growth with previous announcements, TechCrunch reports that the company is “increasing its active base at a fairly consistent pace.”
In March, Twitter will celebrate its seventh birthday – will the platform be able to sustain this growth rate?
