Twitter: The Fastest Growing Social Platform

Twitter is now the fastest growing social platform increasing 40% between Q2 and Q4 2012. This means there are now 485m account holders and 288m active users.

The infographic from globalwebindex.net below also shows that:

  • Saudi Arabia has the largest number of active users in the EMEA region. 
  • PC still has the largest number of active users, something we were surprised at having expected mobile to be on top.
  • Biggest uptake is with those aged 25 to 34 and with those who are self-employed.

Twitter still proves popular however Google+ is not far behind with over 400 million members and over 100 million active users. Could 2013 see Google+ overtake Twitter? Or will Pinterest surge forward?
