Twitter, the micro-blogging platform, has been in the news quite a bit lately (in particular for VC funding ). Year on year, Internet visits to Twitter are up 8 fold. In the past three months, visits have more than doubled and traffic continues to climb, up 60% in the past month. The site ranked #439 among Social Networks and Forums last week and #4309 among All Categories of websites.
The following chart shows that the growth is slow but steady with an acceleration in the last few weeks.
Whilst Twitter continues to be an interesting website, it also continues to enjoy strong growth. Clickstream data helps us understand that this growth is both from new users and repeat visitors.
