70% of traffic is international, Japan tops that stat.


Katie Stanton, Twitter vice president of international strategy, recently announced that the popular micro-blogging/ranting/stalking site Twitter has surpassed 200 million users. Shockingly, the website claims it adds 500,000 new users per day.

Interestingly, Stanton says that 70% of the total traffic comes outside of USA, with Japan topping the charts with 25% of all posts.

These are pretty impressive numbers for a company that launched four years ago. Now only if they start making some money…
