Vine Hits 40m Users

Vine has passed 40m users, according to a tweet from its official account.

Last time the Twitter video app announced its userbase, it stood at 13m. That was in June, around 18 weeks after launch. That means its gained 27m users in the last 11 weeks. Presumably, a large part of that acceleration is down to the apps Android launch in July.

Its worth noting that this number is presumably registered, rather than active, users of the service.

The obvious comparison, with Instagram Video, is complicated by that service being a subset of the wider Instagram service, which overall has 130m users.
