Although Twitter’s growth rate has slowed down over the past year, it’s still one of the most popular — and powerful — social media networks around. It has 313 million active users, 79% of accounts outside of the United States.
With reach like that, businesses around the world are smart to continue using and innovating on Twitter — and adapting to the way people use it. Nowadays, 82% of active Twitter users log on using the mobile app rather than logging on via desktop. Just under 63% of U.S. Twitter users get their news on Twitter. And, impressively, Twitter’s paid ad engagement grew 208% from 2015 to 2016.
