After wrapping up the year with its 2012 Year On Twitter, and launching a foray of updates that included photo filters, new profile updates, and the capability to download tweets, the insanely popular micro-blogging service is announcing today that it now has more than 200 million monthly active users. “There are now more than 200M monthly active @twitter users,” the company announced. “You are the pulse of the planet. We’re grateful for your ongoing support.”¬†It is worth noting that Twitter hit the 100 million mark in September last year, after more than five years since its launch. Today’s news is definitely a sign that Twitter is growing at a much faster rate. Although the feat is still a long shot to Facebook’s more than a billion users, at least the numbers are roughly in line with¬†LinkedIn’s and Google+’s numbers.
