This is the first month in history where Google+ brands grow faster than brands on Twitter. Historical moment?
Google+ probably has long before it can beat Facebook in growth, but it already beat Twitter in one important area: Growth of brands. Twitter with its recent releases of new Twitter brand pages has tried to get closer to brands, but is failing to engage them further. Google+ on the other hand has engaged them very well, bringing in much faster growth than Twitter. In January, it was close, but in February, its clear that Google+ brands are growing several times faster.

Good luck keeping it up, Google+, and good luck for Twitter to continue the recent innovations!
