Instagram bypasses Twitter in number of users

(CNN) – Social media giant Instagram announced Wednesday that there are now more than 300 million users posting random images about their life, their loved ones, and their lunch on the mobile site.

The company said users post at least 70 million photos and videos a day.

Exactly two years ago, College Humor had a little fun making fun of pointless pictures on Instagram, while also making Nickleback tolerable for two minutes.

With this new milestone, Instagram now bypasses the 284 million users on Twitter.

The company is also borrowing a feature from Twitter. In the next few days, Instagram will launch verified accounts, separating real celebrity and brand pages from the fake ones.
