The number of monthly active users of the online messaging service X, until recently Twitter, has risen to more than 541 million, according to CEO Elon Musk. That, he says, is a “new high”.
Musk reported the figure in a chart on X. He acquired the former Twitter for $ 44 billion and made significant changes to the company.
For example, a large part of the staff has been laid off. Many advertisers have walked away from X.
In May 2022, Twitter still had 229 million monthly active users. X faces competition from the Threads app from Facebook’s parent company Meta Platforms.
