Twitter has just surpassed 300 million user mark and heading for more strengthen position by adding 8.2 new users each passing second. Though these figures are not straight from horse’s mouth it has been analyzed well by Twitter account tracker Twopcharts, who calculates the data based on registered Used IDs.
I am not betting big on such figures are I have never heard of Twopcharts ever before nor I have dogged their other analysis’ before. The other reason which is making me to have second thought on such figures is Twitter’s official announcement of passing 200 million marks just 2 months back in February. And if Twopcharts figures can be justified anyhow, then undoubtedly it’s an enormous success for Twitter.
Surprisingly, I have not seen any official reaction on twitter on any such speculation before. Absolutely I have no clue on what is holding Twitter to announce their progression periodically. But if the company decides to do so, it would be allowed social media industry analysts, like us, to have better control over figures and could have far effective market forecast.
Unlike Facebook, Twitter is, apparently, anxious towards various aspects of the whole business model. The recent love-hate story between Twitter and UberMedia has already been gained ‘no welcome’ attention. Consequently, Twitter settled down with TweetDeck acquisition and UberMedia with the plan of Twitter alternative.
However, we can only expect to see the substantial difference when these figures will be tested on the grounds of actual active users.
