Twitter has released a slew of statistics in recent months, from how many tweets are sent per day to the number of accounts created per day.
Here’s another one that’s been more elusive: the number of users Twitter actually has.
According to Twitter’s Katie Stanton, vice president of international strategy, the microblogging service now has over 200 million accounts. It should be noted that those hundreds of millions accounts may not all be active ones and the number of active users may be quite lower–though Twitter hasn’t shared that stat. A research report from Columbia University and Yahoo! Research found that 05% of the site’s users are responsible for half of all tweets.
