Twitter Ecosystem Hits 1.5 Million Apps

Twitter’s API account released a ‘fun fact recently, according to which, the company announced that its network has passed an impressive 1.5 million apps mark.  Looking at the progress of Facebook and its recent show with its IPO, we can easily disregard Twitter as a platform, but the latest announcement made it clear that Twitter’s potential spreads far beyond its core service.

The announcement is made through a tweet by Twitter’s API account. The entire team expressed its gratitude to developers for developing apps on the platform. The screenshot of an original tweet given below will tell you the entire story.

It is worth noting here that “registered apps” doesn’t essentially mean that all applications in the network are in fact active. This, however, points out that every single discarded application is also added to the total count. In a response to the tweet, a third-party developer, Chris Field explained that a few dozen of those were me messing about.

“Growth, however, has been pretty good with the ecosystem apparently, as Twitter’s last milestone of 1 million “apps” was only last July. Twitter might not be raking in the revenue that many would like it to have, but it certainly is still taking a strong hold on many services across the Internet (but not as strong as Facebook of course),” reported Tip Desk.

Regardless of what may happen developers are certainly hopping over to the platform in crowd or multitudes, eager to leverage all that Twitter has to offer. However, it is still unclear whether how the company manages to monetize this massive growth, but one thing is obvious that the potential of the company is definitely on rise. The way Twitter is growing it certainly has its role to play in social platforms in the coming future.
