Twitter boasts 100 million daily active users and 140 million tweets every day. Twitter is also creating 460,000 new accounts per day, bringing the total number of registered users to 1.3 billion. However, only about 200,000 of those users log in each day.
The daily active user count is growing but the overall user base is shrinking as more and more people register but few continue to use the service.
In addition to daily active users, there are other ways of looking at how many people are using Twitter on any given day. For example, it's possible to see how many unique visitors are visiting the site by using web analytics tools such as Google Analytics. It's also possible to see how many times various URLs on Twitter have been clicked. From these metrics alone, we know that millions of people visit Twitter.com every month but only a small fraction of them go beyond just viewing the homepage.
It's also important to remember that although they appear together on most Twitter reports, monthly active users and daily active users are not the same thing. A user may have signed up with Twitter but never logged in again so they would be counted as a monthly active user but not as a daily active user.
Twitter has 353 million monthly active users as of now. It is an increase from 54 million in 2010. Last year, Twitter earned $3.72 billion in revenue (2020).
It is the most popular social networking service in China with more than 930 million users as of January 2016. It is also the most used social networking service in India.
In April 2009, Twitter launched a new feature called "Moments", which are large images and videos that appear on users' home pages to highlight important events in their lives or about them. These Moments can be selected by clicking on the "home" button next to the user's name on the top right corner of the screen. Users can also create their own Moments by taking pictures and adding text notes.
The first tweet was sent on March 14, 2006, by San Francisco programmer Jack Dorsey. He wrote: "What's up everyone? I'm running through the streets of San Francisco talking to strangers about my life experiences." From then on, Twitter became a platform for people to communicate instantly with friends, family, and others around the world.
As of February 2020, there are over 200 million tweets sent out each month. You could say that every person on Earth sends out an average of one tweet per day.
Twitter has 175 million registered users, according to its "about" page. However, the word "registered users" is amusing. It basically refers to the quantity of accounts. So far in Twitter's existence, 175 million Twitter accounts have been created. That's a lot of people sharing their thoughts with the world via tweets.
In addition, there are other types of accounts on Twitter. These include deleted accounts, suspended accounts, and protected accounts. The number of these different type of accounts is not known. However, we do know that at least 100 million tweets are sent out each month. So it can be estimated that there are at least 200 million unique accounts on Twitter. This is including both registered and unregistered users.
This number is so large that it's difficult to comprehend. When you look at the top 10 most followed people on Twitter, all of them have fewer than 40 million followers. So almost anyone could be important on Twitter. This also means that no one is irrelevant which seems like a good thing (but maybe not!).
Finally, there are other services besides Twitter that allow you to post notes of interest. There's Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, and even Google+ allows you to post comments called "notes". There are even social networks specifically for kids called "TiddlyWinks" and "Nobuzzy!".
