How's this for irony? Sina Weibo, China's Twitter clone, now officially has more users than actual Twitter.
The Chinese firm's latest earnings report revealed that the platform had grown to 340 million active users per month, making it the first time ever the copycat platform surpassed its source of inspiration. Twitter, by comparison, had 328 million active users in the first quarter of 2017.
Weibo already surpassed Twitter in terms of overall worth last fall, with a market cap of USD11.35billion in October 2016 (compared to Twitter's USD11.34 billion).
