Yep, the fight for our attention is certainly on. Twitter had 500 million users in June. Instagram had 100 million users in September.

— None of my “normal” friends use Twitter. Many of those with smartphones are using Instagram.
— Everybody except maybe one use Facebook. Use may be a strong word, but they at least have an account.
One more thing: This “war” once again demonstrates the current big weakness of Windows Phone. More like Windows Who? if you ask Twitter or Instagram.
