Snapchat’s Takeover Continues: The App Reportedly Has More Daily Users Than Twitter

Close

Snapchat continues to prove that it is here to stay and plans on being popular for a long time to come.

Move over Twitter, because users would rather send snaps than compose tweets. According to a new report from Bloomberg, Snapchat has 150 million people using the app each day.

This means the app now has more daily active users on its service than Twitter, which the report estimates currently has about 140 million daily active users.

Keep in mind that neither Snapchat nor Twitter has publicly announced their daily active user base, but rather, these numbers come from sources close to Bloomberg.

Still, it should come to no surprise that more people are using Snapchat on the daily opposed to Twitter because the ephemeral messaging app has climbed its way up the popularity charts as of late. Snapchat has grown more than 35 percent in five months based on the fact that it had 110 million daily active users back in December.

What's even more interesting — and impressive — is that Snapchat also reached this amount of daily users in almost five years, whereas Twitter just celebrated its 10th birthday.

As Snapchat continues to grow, Twitter's growth remains flatlined. The company revealed in its latest financial report for the first quarter of 2016 that the amount of daily users did not grow in the U.S., and only grew three percent worldwide.

It seems like there are many more reasons to open Snapchat every day, whether it's for its new filters that range from dalmatians and other animals to being able to face swap with friends, or to check out celebrities' Stories that only remain live for 24 hours.

While users still might want to share their thoughts or feelings or check out the latest trending hashtags, Twitter seems not to be the go-to app for communicating directly with friends. There was once a time when Twitter was right there under Facebook when it came to popularity, but other apps like Instagram have surpassed it in this department.

All social media apps may appear to fizzle out a bit after some time as new options enter the market, but for now, Snapchat is here to stay. After its recent round of funding, the company is valued at $16 billion.
