46% Of Active Twitter Users Use Mobile Access, 16% Of New Users Start With Mobile

Twitter and mobile obviously go hand in hand, but recent stats published by Twitter itself show just how much of an influence mobile has on the so-called twitter-verse, especially since the company debuted its own in-house mobile apps.

According to recent figures, Twitter receives the highest amount of users via the Web, with 78% of all users, leaving a large margin between its mobile Web counterpart, m.twitter.com, which holds just 14% of users.  Interestingly, since mid-April, the company has seen a 62% rise in mobile users with 16% of all new users starting from a mobile application.  In total, 46% of active users make mobile a regular part of their Twitter experience.

The Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for BlackBerry apps are now two of the most popular ways to use Twitter, with SMS taking the number three spot after Twitter.com and its mobile Web counterpart.  Surprisingly, UberTwitter — which is my personal Twitter client of choice — is at the bottom of the list with only 2% of active users sporting the app.  Still, these are interesting numbers indeed, hopefully Twitter continues to share this data.
