Twitter active members nearly double in nine months, surpass 100 million

Yesterday was a big day for Twitter as the company confirmed that the number of active members has exceeded 100 million. That’s a whopping 82% increase compared to the beginning of this very year.

The total number of registered users on Twitter wasn’t quoted, with the last revealed figure of 200 million dating from a few months back. What’s quite impressive though is that 50% of those 100 million active users log onto the 140-character network daily.

The company’s CEO Dick Costolo used the occasion to share his thoughts on the newly emerging star on the social scene, Google Plus. Costolo was quoted by Reuters, saying that he sees Twitter and Google+ as different products, so the rise of Google’s network isn’t something his company should fear.
