We already know that social networking and micro-blogging platform Twitter is incredibly popular with regular users all over the world. Unsurprisingly Twitter is also popular among developers. Yesterday, the 11th of July, Twitter announced that there are more than 1 million registered Twitter applications out there. These apps have been developed by some 750,000 developers from all corners of the world.

That should be enough to prove that Twitter is popular among devs. If it isn’t, here are a few more figures to better put things in perspective. As Twitter explained, new Twitter apps are registered at a rate of 1 every 1.5 seconds. Just a year ago, there were only 150,000 Twitter apps out there; now there are more than 1 million.

“Investors and businesses are taking note. Since December 2010, more than $500 million has been invested in ecosystem companies, and more than a billion dollars has been paid out in acquisitions. This level of investment is indicative of the opportunity for developers and entrepreneurs to build successful businesses as part of the Twitter platform,” said Twitter.

Because Twitter is committed to investing in the ecosystem, because it takes feedback from devs seriously, and because it wants to provide the right tools and info to devs, it launched a new Twitter Developer site – visit it by clicking here. The site is meant to aid anyone in the ecosystem to easily start building with Twitter, connect directly with Twitter team members, exchange ideas, and access the resources needed to create their own products and businesses.

I mentioned above that Twitter is quite popular among regular users. People keeping track of these things will remember that earlier this month Twitter announced that 200 million tweets are being sent out on a daily basis. Additional info on this topic is available here.
