How Many People Really Use Twitter? A Lot, But Fewer Than You Think [CHART]

image from free-web-design.co.cc Facebook has 600 million visitors every month and half that visit every day.  But how many users does Twitter have and how active are they?  The Twitter about page says that they have 175 million users, but that probably counts every person that has ever created an account whether they use it or not.  Silicon Ally Insider knows someone with access to Twitter's API and found these user stats:

  • 119 million Twitter accounts follow 1 or more other accounts
  • 85 million accounts with 1 or more followers
  • Extrapolating from Twitter's claim of 175 million users, that means that there are 56 million Twitter accounts following no other accounts
  • And 90 million Twitter accounts with zero followers
  • 56 million accounts on Twitter follow 8 or more accounts
  • 38 million follow 16
  • 12 million follow 64
