Twitter has surpassed the 50 million monthly visitors mark for the first time, and is now one of the Top 50 most popular websites in the world, according to new data. In July, the micro-blogging platform website attracted 51.6 million unique users, up 7.1 million from June, according to new research from comScore.
The increase in traffic puts Twitter ahead of the BBC and the popular US online classified website Craigslist. Significantly, the majority of new visitors are not coming from the US. International visitors now represent 59% of traffic, an increase of 4% on the previous month, comScore found. Despite its soaring popularity, the Twitter audience is still just a quarter the size of its biggest rival Facebook, which is averaging over 200 million unique users every month.
