Twitter’s growth in total active users is a possible problem for the social network post-IPO, with one recent study revealing that the platform grew just 2 percent in the last 6 months of 2013.
One region that has seen user growth is South Korea, with 1.5 million Twitter account holders being added between November 2012 and November 2013, totalling 7.5 million overall, reports CYRAM.
However, despite this uptick the total number of active users has actually declined to 1 million from 1.2 million, and South Korean users are sending about 10 million less tweets per month than they were in November 2012.
