Twitter Passes 10 Billion Tweets
We all know that Twitter has grown rapidly and become extremely popular. In fact, the service has become so popular that it even has its own rewards. However, I found some interesting growth data and enlightening on Twitter, while recently conducting research for hosting provider 34SP.com dealer. Twitter just send your tweet 10 billion.
That’s a ten with nine zeros: 10,000,000,000.
When you think about it – it is not surprising. After all, this was the site grew 1382 percent in one year from February 2008-February 2009. The site attracted 475,000 visitors in February 2008 and rose to 7,038,000 users just a year later. According to published data, Twitter now conducts a daily average of 50 million tweets. The 140 characters or fewer messages are out on the Internet, telephones and other devices at a rate of more than 2 million every hour of every day. Twitter’s official blog stated a few weeks ago, these growth trends, “People are tweeting 5,000 times a day in 2007. For 2008, that number was 300,000, and by 2009 had grown to 2.5 million per day. Peeps 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.). ”
The Twitter service was developed in 2006. On March 21, 2006 Jack Dorsey published the first Twitter message at 9:50 pm Pacific Standard Time (PST). That message was: “Only the creation of my twttr.” Since then, Twitter has become a huge phenomenon of social media – although the company has struggled in recent years to develop a real revenue model for weight gain financially from the popularity of the service. According to Wikipedia, the company has raised more than $ 57 million from venture capitalists.
The ten-billionth tweet is estimated to be sent in the last 24 hours. The uncertainty stems from the methodology used to determine exactly how tweets that have been sent. The method used is based on historical data and rates of Twitter to reach a number. Most news sources are going to a nice application simply titled GigaTweet has a counter that continuously counts to tweets.
GigaTweet believes that the next billion tweets that have been sent in the next 20 days. That’s a few tweets.
