Instagram Hits 300 Million Users, Celebrates With Badges For Celebrities

An Instagram user takes a photo at a meetup. 

Nine short months after the image-sharing site hit the 200 million user milestone, Instagram reports it now has 300 million users.

“Over the past four years, what began as two friends with a dream has grown into a global community that shares more than 70 million photos and videos each day,” the social network’s blog post said.

On the other hand, Twitter says it has added just 38 million people in the past nine months.
