Twitter Users & Growth Rate Forecast, 2012-2018 [CHART]

Twitter’s global user base will grow at a double-digit rate each year through 2018, though the pace of that growth will slow during the forecast period, per eMarketer. The researchers expect the number of Twitter users around the world to grow by 24.4% this year from 182.9 to 227.5 million, excluding China, where the site is banned. Despite China’s exclusion, eMarketer predicts that by 2018, the Asia-Pacific region will account for 40% of Twitter’s 387 million users. Source: eMarketer
