50 million tweets on Twitter everyday!
Twitter has officially revealed that they are now seeing as many as 50 million tweets per day!
This comes to around 600 tweets per second. No wonder, it is getting real hard for heavy users of the service to keep up with their followers.
Twitter said in a blog posting:
Folks were tweeting 5,000 times a day in 2007. By 2008, that number was 300,000, and by 2009 it had grown to 2.5 million per day. Tweets grew 1,400% last year to 35 million per day. Today, we are seeing 50 million tweets per day—that’s an average of 600 tweets per second. (Yes, we have TPS reports.)
