It’s clear that Pokémon Go has taken the world by storm, even though it’s technically only launched in a few locations. And according to one firm, it’s becoming almost as popular as Twitter.

Although Pokémon Go has yet to launch in Europe as well as other locations, the game has sure blown up pretty quickly. Aside from the unstable servers and other more questionable issues that have arisen from the game, it’s pretty popular and according to Similar Web, it’s catching up to Twitter.

According to data compiled from Similar Web, Pokémon Go is catching up and could possibly overtake Twitter in terms of daily active users. In a chart, which you can see below, you can easily see that the launch of Pokémon Go has become popular, fast, and is becoming used almost as much as Twitter on a daily basis.


The report adds that Pokémon Go has an app engagement of 60% meaning that of those who have downloaded the app, over half use it every day. Of course, seeing as the game has in-app-purchases, we can only imagine how much Niantic Labs and The Pokémon Company are making from the game.

Of course, the game’s first week of launch is bound to be popular, just like Nintendo’s Miitomo, but as we all know, that app died a quick death once users got bored of answering the same questions over and over.


As the roll out is still taking place across the world, it’s likely that the game’s popularity will rise even higher, especially when it officially hits the UK and Europe.
