Twitter Userbase Soars To Over 100 Million – Greater Than 200 million Overall Users

image As Twitter continues to go mainstream, they are still a startup.  Twitter is soaring.  I have estimated in the past that Twitter is not pushing greater than 50 million users.  I was wrong and Twitter is pushing over 300,000 new users everyday.  They have a big opportunity.

Biz Stone on stage at the Twitter developer conference confirms that they have 105,779,710 registered users.  Other stats: 300,000 new users a day, 180 Million Unique visitors a month, 75% of traffic comes 3rd party apps and sites not from Twitter.com, and over 3 billion requests a day on Twitter.com.

Early adopters are saying that 40% are spam and marketing accounts.  I’m still not sure but Twitter is very important and they are not going anywhere soon (unless they get bought by Google).

Evan Williams is talking about the stability of Twitter and their continued focus on innovation and collaboration.  They are pushing the message "we are here to help you".  Knowing Ev and the team they mean it.
