Instagram-300-millionInstagram has revealed that it now has over 300 million people!

These 300 million people are sharing  photos to the tune of 70 million stills and videos every day.

This means that Instagram has more user count than Twitter, although it’s still far behind the number using Facebook — which, well, owns Instagram.

Last year, it added a People tab to coerce users into following more people showcase notable accounts and is now attempting to hack away at that number, you might have noticed a little notification inside the app saying that the team was purging spam accounts – warning, your follower count may drop.

Celebrities, brands and other well-monied types are being granted with verified badges starting today.
