What Does 100M Active Users Mean for Twitter?

So Twitter has 100 million active users. Big number but what does it mean?

It means there is a huge community of people who use Twitter because it has some kind of value.

It means while Twitter still hasn’t gone mainstream, it’s pretty darn popular, and not just in North America.

It means another micro-blogging service looking to take on Twitter is going to have a difficult time getting a foothold.

It means having 100 million using doesn’t mean you have a vibrant business or guarantees a business plan.

It means people are completely happy to use a free service.

It means Twitter could probably sell itself to someone looking for a large user base it can monetize.

What does 100 million mean to you?

Note: Apologies for the blogging absence. Work and summer vacation kind of got the best of me.
