Twitter’s Growth

18 July 2008 · 1 comment

The TwitDir site catalogues users on the twitter social networking site and provides a search directory, making it easier to find people on twitter. It also reports the total number of twitter users it has indexed in its database. The Twitter Facts blog has been using this figure over the last year to track twitter’s growth.

Note that earlier in the year, TwitDir identified an error in their reporting algorithm that understated the totals for a period of time. This was subsequently corrected and the dashed line in the chart is an estimated restating of the numbers during the period of the error. Also, Twitter Facts estimates that the TwitDir totals could be consistently understated by 20-30%. Nevertheless, it is evident that twitter is growing steadily.
