In an email to Twitter users, “Get the most out of Twitter in 2011,” the company mentioned at the bottom that there are “about 200 million accounts on Twitter now.” This is an increase from the previously reported figure of 175 million and now puts Twitter at approximately a third of Facebook’s user base. And it’s a long way from the days of 3 million Twitter users, which I remember fondly.[1]

 

Using data that is now just one month old, he found out that…

  • There were 119 million Twitter accounts following one or more other accounts.
  • There were 85 million accounts with one or more followers.

With these figures, and Twitter’s claim of 175 million accounts, a little subtraction shows us that there are 56 million Twitter accounts following zero other accounts, and 90 million Twitter accounts with zero followers.[2]
