Twitter UK: 10 Million Active Users, Rising To 14 Million By 2017 [STATS]

Use of Twitter by internet users in the United Kingdom has risen by 1.3 million to almost 10 million people over the past twelve months, representing a net gain of more than 15 percent, suggests a new report from eMarketer.

Moreover, the study predicts that Twitter will continue to see growth in the UK, reaching 12.2 million users in 2015 and close to 14 million by 2017.

Twitter is particularly well represented by users in the key 18-24 and 25-34 demographics, and both figures are forecast to continue to rise in coming years.

Twitter will reach 20.8 percent of UK internet users in 2013, with this number forecast to reach 26.6 percent by 2017, including 44.9 percent and 39.6 percent of the 18-24 and 25-34 age groups.
