WhatsApp reached 250 million monthly active users

Remember when two months ago CEO, Jan Koum, said application was ‘bigger’ than Twitter in terms of monthly active users? At that time nobody talked about exact figures, but said Koum messaging service exceeded 200 million active users, and while Twitter has 500 million users, only 200 million are considered active .

Well, WhatsApp now clarified this situation and announced that they have over 250 million monthly active users, the first time reveal the amount (relatively) accurate users of the popular messaging application.

This figure confirms the assertion Koum, and is quite impressive considering that the application only has about four years old and spent almost no money on advertising. Yes, although it has already surpassed Twitter still is not the most used messaging application of the world as, for example, Skype has about 280 million monthly active users.
