Chart: Twitter Growth, 2017-2018

This year, 55.2 million people in the US will use Twitter. That’s 16.8% of the population and a 0.9% increase from 2017, according to eMarketer estimates.

User growth is expected to remain under 1% throughout the rest of the forecast period and estimate that Twitter will only add an additional half million users—nearly all of whom will be adults ages 25 or older.

Millennials are more avid users of Twitter than their younger and older cohorts. This year, eMarketer expects 21.0 million millennials will use the social platform. Read the rest at eMarketer.
