Instagram overtakes Twitter in terms of users

Social network Instagram, which specializes in photo sharing, has overtaken rival Twitter in user numbers. Instagram announced on Wednesday that it has more than 300 million active users.

According to the company, 284 million users had exchanged short messages limited to 140 characters on Twitter at the end of September.

Every day, the Instagram community shares more than 70 million photos and videos, company CEO Kevin Systrom shared in a blog post. The social network offers a home to "creativity in all forms," he said. Instagram is owned by industry leader Facebook, which bought the photo service in 2012 for $1 billion. (SDA)
