Twitter Growth Surpasses Facebook | USTelecom Blog

When Twitter emerged on the Internet scene, some speculated the micro-blogging service was nothing more than a passing fad. Now, a Global Web Index study shows Twitter’s skyrocketing trajectory, making the social network the fastest growing among its competitors including Facebook.

 

Just how significant is Twitter’s growth? According to the report, the number of monthly active users rose to 288 million by the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to just 35 million monthly active users in 2009. Last year alone, the number of users jumped 40% from the second quarter to the fourth quarter.

 

Not only are there more users, but Twitter members are more engaged than ever before, although that doesn't necessarily translate to more tweets.  A significant number of Twitters user quality as “active passive” users – those who do not tweet, but instead use the service as a tool and source of discovery for products, news and more. In fact, only half of active users said they actually posted a tweet in the past month.

"In part 1 of this post we took a look at the writing process itself–the relative awkwardness of the process for many developing writers, and how live modeling can help support writer growth. In this part, we are focusing on using cloud-based word processing and general productivity suites like Adobe Buzzword and Google Docs. We also recently looked at 10 Ideas for Using Technology to Teach Writing.)"

Twitter conversations are easier to follow, thanks to latest update | M-learning writing | Scoop.it

Thankfully, the micro-blogging site’s latest update includes an organizational feature that keeps conversations in line.
