Twitter Grows 5.8% To 255M Monthly Users, And 78% Of Them Are On Mobile

TechCrunch TechCrunch 30/04/2014 Anthony Ha

Twitter just released its earnings report for the first quarter of 2014, in which it said that its total monthly active users had grown to 255 million.

Will that be enough to avert more awkward questions during today’s analyst conference call? Well … maybe. That’s better than the end of 2013, when Twitter only saw 3.9 percent quarter-over-quarter growth, but it’s worse than pretty much any other quarter in he company’s history. (The number also reflects 25 percent growth compared to the same quarter last year.)

that after taking a largely hands-off approach to user growth, the company has begun adding features specifically aimed at increasing user engagement.

Meanwhile, mobile MAUs grew 198 million, accounting for 78 percent of the total.
