Twitter has announced that it has reached the milestone of 200 million monthly active users.

The microblogging service today (December 18) composed a tweet breaking the news and thanking its account holders for their support.

"There are now more than 200M monthly active Twitter users. You are the pulse of the planet. We're grateful for your ongoing support," read the post.

Twitter hit the milestone just over six years after its founder Jack Dorsey sent the first tweet to his seven followers. The website reached 100 million users in September last year.

The news rounds off an important year for Twitter, which has played a major role in some of the key events of 2012, including the London Olympic Games and Barack Obama's re-election.

The figures suggest that Twitter has gained some 60 million users in the last nine months, making it the fastest-growing social network.
