"Pokemon Go" Is About To Surpass Twitter,And It Hasnt Even Launched Globally Yet!!
Cops and kids are playing Pokémon Go together in the streets, local businesses are tailoring their marketing around Pokémon Go, and self-professed socially awkward gamers are making new friends by the dozen. Walk around any neighborhood, and it’s clear that Pokémon Go is enormously popular and having a massive social impact. How massive, though? Data published today by SimilarWeb indicates that the mobile game may be poised to surpass Twitter TWTR -1.94% in daily active users on Android.
Seriously. And Pokémon GO hasn’t even launched globally. It’s currently only officially available in the US, New Zealand, and Australia. Niantic Labs has actually paused their global rollout due to overwhelming (and I have to suspect somewhat unexpected) demands placed on their servers.
The data gets even more staggering. As of 48 hours ago, Pokemon GO was installed on 5.6% of all Android devices in the United States, and is installed on more Android phones than Tinder. Not only that, but on average users are spending twice the amount of time engaged with Pokemon GO than they are on apps like Snapchat.
Pokémon GO can be played on androids and IOS..Time to find something new!!
Pokémon GO?.. GO Pokémon!!
