A post on blog.twitter.com by Evan Williams Twitter co-founder and CEO added that 16% of all new Twitter users were using it on mobile and that 46% of all active users regularly use the service via mobile as well as their PCs.
In the post, Williams wrote, “one major area of difficulty I highlighted (at their Chirp conference) was getting Twitter on your phone. We did iPhone user tests and confirmed that even though there was a plethora of third-party Twitter apps, people were having trouble finding and selecting one because none were called ’Twitter’.”
Since April, Twitter has acquired the rights to apps such as Tweetie and rebranded it Twitter for iPhone, and recently launched a new version of Twitter for Android, as well as working with RIM to develop Twitter for BlackBerry.[ad name=”Google Text half banner advert “]
