3 million Twitter users

On June 29, 2008 I wrote on this blog that Twitter reached 2 million users - according to Twitdir. Twitter has passed another milestone a few days ago, 3 million users. As Twitdir only "knows" Twitter users with a public profile, the actual number of Twitter users is higher, as discussed in this blogpost.


The growth of Twitter users follows an exponential curve - at least until now. If the same trend continues, 4 million will be reached around mid November. Around Christmas the 5 million mark will be reached. 6 million will be reached around mid January 2009 and 7 million around Mid February. Whatever the trend will be, I will continue to monitor this trend.

IN 12 months, we will look back and see that Twitter will be the fastest growing SN (SN's with over 1M users) EVER. On my blog, I suggest 50M users within 2 years.

Unfortunatly, the main source for the number of Twitter users - Twitdir.com - is down. So up to date information on the number of users tracked by Twitdir is currently no longer available.

A good Twitter Application where you can buy retweets for as low as 50 for $5 is called reTweet.it The retweets help your links to be seen by thousands of other twitter users.

Twitter retweets are posts that are reposted by your followers. When your posts are reposted, your posts receive increased viewership. This means that if you sell products and services on your account, your products and services will receive plenty of exposure. Increased exposure of your products means increased sales. There are many sites on the internet where you can buy twitter retweets. Although, there are many sites on the internet where you can buy retweets from, the unfortunate thing is that there are many scam sites that are out there to steal from you. to ensure that you are not scammed, you should do plenty of research before you part with you hard earned money.
