At Twitter's Chirp developer conference, company co-founder Biz Stone revealed that there are currently over 105 million registered Tweeters on Twitter. The exact number is currently pinned at 105,779,710. This figure was revealed in a presentation slide at Chirp. In comparison, Facebook boasts four times that number of registered users, at 400 million users, despite being only two years older than Twitter.

Stone also revealed that the site handles 600 million search requests per day, or 19 billion search requests per month in comparison to 90 billion search requests via Google. Twitter is currently adding about 300,000 users per day.

This tells us much more about the decline of society than it does the success of micro blogging. Scary.

But what would actually be interesting to know is what fraction of a percent of these users are actually active? That would put things in perspective.

that's probably not to far from the truth as i would assume most people ain't even worth messing with. lol

p.s. me personally... i only viist Twitter once in a while to maybe see some stuff random famous people do. but i don't have a account.

I bet only 40 million people actually use it often though.

I have a couple of accounts, one not used and the other is very rarely, like only if some competition requires a post to twitter or something.

I'm a registered user, and I used it about four times before I stopped. I have two friends that did the same.

I imagine this is a regular occurrence.

Yup. I tried it and then went off it. A while later I went back and now I can't stop myself. It does take a while to 'get it' and decide what form your presence on Twitter is going to take.

Credit to them. For a service that simply provides a way of creating 140 character public messages, that's a hell of a lot of potential ad revenue once they release their advertising platform.
