London: Photo-sharing social network Instagram has attracted more mobile visitors than the popular micro blogging site Twitter for the first time since it was founded, says a report.

Internet analytics company ComScore revealed that across mobile phones in the US during August, Instagram received an average of 7.3 million daily visitors.

During the same period Twitter attracted 6.9 million users, the report said.

According to The Telegraph, the report said users also spent more time on the photo-sharing site than those who visited Twitter.

Instagram visitors spent an average of 257 minutes on the site via mobile phones in August, while those logging on to Twitter spent an average of 170 minutes viewing the site, it said.

According to the paper, this is the first time that Instagram, which was only developed two years ago, has pulled ahead of rival Twitter, which has over 500 million users worldwide.
