Twitter CEO Evan Williams recently revealed that the microblogging service now boasts 145 million registered users, up from 105 million a few months ago. Doing the math, we can see that its been growing at a rate of 300,000 new users per day.
Of course, mobile plays a huge role in Twitter’s growth. Sixteen percent of new Twitter users now join via mobile device, as opposed to signing up on the web. The official Twitter mobile apps have significantly helped the company on this front.
This week’s Twitter for iPad unveiling could also help the company recruit even more new members through mobile. The application offers a fresh iPad-specific application experience with an innovative panel design.
