New Delhi: Homegrown microblogging platform Koo on Wednesday announced that it has become the second largest microblog available to the world.

Launched in March 2020, the platform recently clocked 50 million downloads and has seen an upward trajectory in terms of growth.

“We are overwhelmed by the response we have received from our users and are happy to share that today, we are the second largest microblog in the world within just 2.5 years of our existence.
