Supplementary notes
* Forecast.
The source doesn’t break down monthly Twitter user numbers per quarter, but rather by year. The numbers are lower than official Twitter numbers as they are for all social networks because the source does not count duplicate accounts, fake accounts, business accounts and nonhuman accounts.
