Twitter Reaches 200 Million Daily Tweets

Twitter has just announced that the platform gets 200 million tweets per day from all over the world. Just a year ago, the company was ‘only’ getting 65 million tweets per day. This January? The company received 2 million tweets per day.

All this is happening faster than you can say “growth” and leaves you wondering where the company will be at later down the road. What do you think Twitter will be at by New Years 2012? Kind of frightening when you think about it.

I still haven’t got into the whole Twitter thing myself, it seems like a bit too much work and I feel like I can enjoy my time doing other things (reading up on science/tech, gaming, exercising). I feel like I waste enough time on Facebook as it is, but apparently there are many who enjoy both social media networks.

In its blog, Twitter brags about being more than an extraordinarily large user-base, its talking raw data stats from people who actually use the service, not just people who log in and read other peoples tweets. The company also listed 10 of the most trending topics in World Events/News and Pop Culture:
