More than 10 million people have signed up for X in December, X CEO Linda Yaccarino said in a post on the social media platform on Thursday.

X, formerly known as Twitter, which does not regularly release user data, could not immediately be reached for comment on how the December sign-ups compared to average or why Ms. Yaccarino disclosed the figure. Billionaire owner Elon Musk said in July the site had 540 million monthly users.

Several companies, including Apple, Disney, Warner Bros Discovery , Comcast, Lions Gate Entertainment , Paramount Global, and IBM said in November they were pausing their advertisements on X.

A report from watchdog group Media Matters found ads from major companies next to X posts that supported Nazism. The platform filed a lawsuit in late November against Media Matters accusing it of defamation.
