Twitter Records Record Numbers in July
The month of July brought exceptionally good results for twitter in that it posted a record amount of traffic during the entire month. There were approximately 32.8 million unique visitors from the United States, up from only 30.6 million visitors in June and only 27 million in May.
While twitter’s traffic is on the rise, other social networks on on the decline. Linkedin saw a decent spike after their IPO but then traffic sharply dropped. Myspace is continuing its slow demise and lost another decrease in traffic throughout the month.
With the launch of Google’s social network Google+, it will be interesting to see if Google can take some of twitter’s traffic. It doesn’t seem like they will be able to do much harm, but it’s still to early in the game to tell how successful Google+ will be. Regardless, things are looking up for twitter as everything just continues to rise.
