Twitter hasn’t given the official break-up of country-wise followers but in the past it had said that the majority of followers had been from USA.
A French research firm had said earlier in the year that there are over 500 million users on Twitter with American and Brazilian users making for the most numbers.
Sys-Con media had estimated that Twitter had over 465 million users and there are over 175 million tweets every day!
The numbers are difficult to comprehend but the bottom line is that Twitter is going strong and we expect more tweaks and changes like the new profile.
