Twitter Reaches 200 Million Active Users

twitter launches mute

The popular social network tweeted on 18 Dec, 2012 where it revealed that it now sees over 200 million monthly active users, up from 140 million users which the company shared nine months back.

This figure means Twitter’s managed a 40% growth in the last 9 months.

Twitter has offered no other details on the latest update, but in the past has said the majority of active users were in the United States. In March, with its 140 million users, Twitter was seeing 340 million tweets per day published to the platform, and that number has now grown to 400 million tweets per day (in the latest figures shared by CEO Dick Costolo in June).

Compared to the social giant Facebook, Twitter has a long way to go before reaching the 1 billion monthly active users. But this news confirms Twitter as one of the biggest players in social media.
