When Twitter reported its results for the second quarter of 2016 on Tuesday, the company once again disappointed its investors with lackluster user growth. Instead of reaccelerating its user growth, Twitter basically flatlined. Now at 313 million monthly active users, Twitter added just 3 million users in the past three months and no more than 11 million since the first quarter of 2015.
As our chart illustrates, Twitter's competitors have overtaken the company left and right in the past years. Instagram recently passed the 500 million user mark while WhatsApp, WeChat and of course Facebook are long out of Twitter's sight.
