Twitter; the 140 character long micro blogging platform that we can’t seem to live without is continuing to attract both users and investors. According to social media guru Jeff Bullas, after receiving a $300 million investment from Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal in late 2011, Twitter is currently valued nearly $9 billion – And it is estimated to have nearly 500 million registered users from all around the world. Twitter’s fast growth was recently made even more possible thanks to Apple’s decision to implement built-in Twitter functionality on its new mobile iOS5 operating system. Thus causing 300% per day increase in new Twitter registered sign ups.
Clearly Twitter is not going anywhere anytime soon. For many, including for myself, Twitter has already won over Facebook. (And I won’t even mention Google Plus). Although 140 characters may seem just too little at times, Its simplicity and easy access to breaking news and other things of interest will assure Twitter’s continuing existence for sure.
