    Great article Matt; no surprise that Twitter is growing, but it’s interesting to see how quickly this is happening. I just watched a video on social media that compared how long it took for various technologies to reach 50 million users, like the radio (38 years), TV (13 years), internet (4 years), iPod (3years), and then showed that Facebook reached 200 million users in a year. Interesting video with a lot of good factoids on social media. Here’s the link in case you haven’t seen it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFZ0z5Fm-Ng&feature=related

    Also, it’s worthy to note that Twitter just introduced “Fast Follow” to allow people in the US to receive tweets on their phones even if they have not signed up for Twitter, which will surely propel the growth of US users.
