Twitter Use (and Projections)

Fewer Than 20 Million US Adults Used Twitter At Least Monthly in 2010. (eMarketer, 2/24/2011)

Excerpt: Although Twitter’s growth rates continue to rise, relatively few online Americans use the microblogging service. According to new estimates by eMarketer, 16.4 million US adults, or 9% of the adult internet population, used Twitter at least monthly in 2010. Growth will surpass 26% this year as Twitter reaches 11% of internet users and 16.5% of US adult social network users. By 2013, nearly 28 million Americans will be tweeting.
