Messaging platform WhatsApp has seen massive user growth over the past four years, with a large portion of the growth coming in the last year or two. WhatsApp has announced that they are now seeing more than 250 million active users, or a quarter of the total users on Facebook.

Back in December, Twitter announced that they had surpassed 200 million active users, making it possible that WhatsApp is now ahead of the micro-blogging site. Telecom companies are likely unhappy with the growth that WhatsApp has seen as they are currently making huge profits from text messaging.

 

Whether WhatsApp will be able to continue this rate of growth remains to be seen.
