Pokemon Go Raises Nintendo Stocks 24%, Will Surpass Twitter for Android Users This Week

Pokemon Go hasn’t even been out for a week, and it’s already a hit. According to internet analytics group SimilarWeb, Pokémon Go Surpassed popular dating app Tinder in its installation percentage for Android in two days, meaning at that time three percent of all Android phones had the app installed. Also according to the report, the app is soon to surpass Twitter’s five percent installation rate, making it more popular than the social network on Android phones. Other parts of the report noted that players spend an average fourty-three minutes a day using the app, which is more than both What’s App and Snapchat.

While this report doesn’t cover the iOS version of the app, it’s still the number one top grossing and top downloaded app for the device’s app store.

This success is also transferring to Nintendo’s stock as well. As of this writing, Nintendo’s stock shot up a dramatic twenty-four percent, rasing the stock price to 20260 Yen, or about two hundred dollars.

Pokémon Go is available now in the US, New Zealand, and Australia.
