Ok, this is getting ridiculous. NHN Japan is announcing today that their Line messaging/calling app has surpassed 50 million users worldwide as of today, July 26. Of those users, 23.5 million are from its home country of Japan.
The company is highlighting the speed with which the app has reached this milestone, comparing its feat with the time that Twitter and Facebook needed to reach that same number (1096 days and 1335 days respectively). Currently the app is growing at an astounding rate of 1 million new users per week (see their charts below, via IT Media).
This calls for cake.
