Like any proud entrepreneur would be, Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter must be on cloud nine today. Twitter announced earlier that they have 100 million active users. This announcement comes only 5 years after the very first tweet by Jack himself. Twitter is now officially a phenomenon, and numbers don’t lie.
The Chief Executive of Twitter, Dick Costolo outlined the company’s projection for gaining new users and increasing revenue. Twitter has set the goal of being on 2 billion devices world-wide. Mr Costolo also provided Twitter’s amazing breakdown of participation usage.
Here’s the breakdown:
- Tweeps are now sending 230 million tweets a day, this number is up 110% from the beginning of the year
- 50 million people log onto Twitter everyday
- Twitter has a total of 200 million registered users
- Twitter host 1 billion tweets every 5 days
- Has recently set a new record of 8,900 tweets per second
Twitter is healthy and growing at impressive numbers. This growth is highly due to the usage of mobile platforms. 55 million Twitter users log onto Twitter from their phones and tablets every month. Twitter’s website traffic is estimated at 400 million visitors a month, this number has jumped from the 250 million that was originally reported at the beginning of the year.
Stay tuned, because Twitter has projected the addition of 26 million active users between now and the end of the year.
So, are you one of the 200 million registered users or will you be one of the 26 million new ones?
