Twitter’s mobile usage of the service has gone up 62% in just over four months, and 16% of all new Twitter users are starting out on mobile devices as opposed to web signups according to Twitter’s CEO Ev Williams.
“Our Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for BlackBerry clients are now two of the most popular ways to use Twitter. This may not be surprising. What may be more surprising are the other top ways people use the service. The following chart shows the top ten applications people have used to access Twitter in the last 30 days. This is based on number of unique users. That is, out of all the people who logged into their Twitter account during the month, what percentage did so via each service. (The total is more than 100% because people often use more than one app.)” wrote Williams on Twitter’s Blog.
