At today’s Twitter news event, co-founder Evan WIlliams revealed a number of impressive statistics about the microblogging network. For example, Williams said Twitter is seeing on average 90 million Tweets per day. As you can see from the graph we’ve embedded, this is a significant increase from even a few months ago. Traffic to Twitter.com has grown about 100% this year.
We’re assuming this stat includes Tweets from both Twitter.com and clients. Williams also said that since the beginning of the year Twitter users on mobile devices are up 250%, with 16% of new users starting to use the service on mobile devices. And there are on average 370,000 new sign-ups per day overall.
Addressing privacy, Williams said that 90% of Tweets are available to the public. And 25% of tweets contain links. Last week, Williams wrote in a blog post that Twitter now has over 145 million registered users with nearly 300,000 registered apps in the Twitter ecosystem.
Created in 2006, Twitter is a global real-time communications platform with 400 million monthly visitors to twitter.com, more than 200 million monthly active users around the world. We see a billion tweets every 2.5 days on every conceivable topic. World leaders, major athletes, star performers, news organizations and entertainment outlets are among the millions of active Twitter accounts through which users can truly get the pulse of the planet.
