Twitter CEO Dick Costolo revealed that the site's 100 million active users generate a massive 250 million messages per day. At the beginning of the year the numbers of messages generated on Twitter was 100 million a day, quite an impressive growth.
While Facebook may claim that it has over 750 million registered users, Twitter is still growing in both registered users and in messages generated by its users. News.com reports that during a tech conference on Monday evening, Twitter's CEO Dick Costolo said that the site now generates a massive 250 million messages per day. That compares to "just" 100 million messages per day which Twitter recorded at the beginning of 2011.
Costolo also said that Twitter now has over 100 million active users globally and that half of those people log in to use Twitter every day. Mobile use of Twitter is also growing at a rate of 40 percent a quarter. Last week, Apple's release of the iOS 5 operating system also included better integration with Twitter. As a result, Costolo said that daily sign ups went up three times just on the first day of iOS 5's release.
