Twitter Sees Nearly 10% Growth in May

By Chris Crum June 9, 2010 | 1 Comment

Each month, we look at Twitter’s growth in terms of new user registrations, number of tweets, and tweets per user registration. This info is provided by Matthew Daines, the lead developer of Twellow, our Twitter app, which serves as the Yellow Pages for Twitter.

Number of New Twitterers Increases Significantly

Every month, WebProNews has been looking at Twitter’s growth in terms of new user registration and number of Tweets. In January, we looked at December’s numbers which showed an increase in tweeting frequency, as Twitter surpassed a billion tweets in a month.

In January, total tweets sent were the largest on record. However, they increased at 6.34% over December, which is the second lowest increase for the last twelve months. Only August saw a lower rate at -6.2%.

Each month we’ve been looking at Twitter’s growth in terms of new user registration and number of Tweets. Last month we saw a decline in the number of new Twitterers in November continuing a trend that began in July.

In December, however, new Twitter user registrations leveled out. Number of tweets grew significantly, and the number of tweets from new users grew as well, possibly indicating that people aren’t just signing up for Twitter and not using it.
