Non-US users helping valuations of Facebook, Twitter soar

Nearly every other day you get to read something about Facebook & Twitter. Here goes one more article!

For a change non-US users are contributing big time to these two internet giants. Recently Facebook opened their office in Hyderabad [photos], will Twitter follow? Not anytime soon.

With increase in internet penetration across the world, I guess these sites are able to attract a lot more users than from US. The following table is a tabular version of the graph I came across today.
