There are many Twitter apps out there, some 3rd party and some official such as Twitter for iPhone (previously Tweetie) and Twitter for BlackBerry (developed by RIM). Twitter – which now has 145 million registered users – released some numbers when it comes to how people are accessing the service. In the last 30 days 14% use the mobile version of Twitter (m.twitter.com) and SMS at 8%. When it comes to specific devices, the Twitter for iPhone is tops with 8%, followed by Twitter for BlackBerry app is close behind at 7%. A distant 2% is Android.
Twitter stated on their blog that “total mobile users has jumped 62 percent since mid-April, and, remarkably, 16 percent of all new users to Twitter start on mobile now, as opposed to the five percent before… 46 percent of active users make mobile a regular part of their Twitter experience.”
Pretty impressive numbers. You can follow up here at Twitter.com/mobilesyrup
