The vandals took the handle

Social media, PR, journalism, football and anything that isn't politically correct

Truly remarkable statistics

Courtesy of Mashable, here’s some  statistics for the communication traditionalists to digest:

‘Remember when Twitter was just a little pipsqueek, with less than 10 million monthly  visitors to its site worldwide?

‘That was back in February, 2009.

“Now, fast-forward to April and  comScore estimates Twitter’s global visitors during that month at a whopping 32 million.”

Based on these figures, Twitter has quickly swept past established social media names like Digg (23 million) and LinkedIn (16 million) 

And, significantly, comScore only measures the number of people who visit Twitter’s Website, not the millions more around the globe who send and read tweets using their their phones or desktop applications.

Who will Twitter pass next?  If it continues adding 10 million global visitors a month, the micro blogger will easily pass 100 million by the end of the year.

No wonder Mashable says that everyone from Facebook to Google is looking over their shoulders.
