Twitter tops 200 mn active users mark
Manama: The number of active users on Twitter has topped 200 million mark, the micro blogging site has announced.
Twitter revealed the news via tweet on the firm’s official account.
“There are now more than 200M monthly active @twitter users. You are the pulse of the planet. We`re grateful for your ongoing support!” it said.
The number was the first official estimate from Twitter since it claimed 140 million active users.
Twitter offered no details on the latest update, but in the past has said the majority of active users were in the United States.
According to the report, earlier this year, a French-based research firm said over 500 million people are on the micro-blogging site, with Americans and Brazilians the most connected.
Another group, Sys-Con media, estimated last month that Twitter had over 465 million accounts and that the number of daily tweets had topped 175 million, the report added.
