Jan Koum, CEO Of WhatsApp At Dive Into Mobile Conference

Last year, Twitter’s Vice President Satya Patel declared that they want to get 200 million active users by August 2012. In December, Twitter announced that it has 200 million monthly active users and it handles over 340 millions tweets and over 1.6 billion search queries per day.

On the other side, WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum said last Tuesday at the Dive Into Mobile conference in New York City arranged by AllThingsD that messaging app WhatsApp has more monthly active users than the micro-blogging site Twitter and hence the app is now “bigger than Twitter.” He also mentioned that WhatsApp had reached 7 billion inbound messages per day milestone in January 2013 and now the app sees an average of 8 billion inbound and 12 million outbound messages per day.

Koum said, “Our goal is to build a sustainable, independent company. We want to build a business. Mobile and messaging is the only thing we do. It’s in our heart and in our blood and DNA.”

Apart from this, Koum also mentioned that to handle the entire community of the users it has less than 50 engineers. Though Koum didn’t mention exactly how many monthly active users WhatApp has, he mentioned that in the North, the company has 200 million users, but not all of them are active.
