Trending: New security service from Cloudflare hopes to kill the VPN once and for all

Some social media companies rise and fall quickly. Twitter, however, doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.

The company used its own account this morning to announce that there are more than 200 million active Twitter users each month.

That represents a 42 percent increase from the 140 million users reported last March. The company said in June that there are more than 400 million Tweets sent out per day.

It’s still a far cry from the billion users on Facebook, but right in line with the 187 million monthly LinkedIn users and well past the 120 million monthly Google+ users.

Twitter hit 100 million monthly active users last September, about five years after the company launched. Twitter added the same amount of users in 15 months as it did in the previous five years. It’s certainly growing quickly.
