Twitter stats from 2007 to 2010

The following graph shows how Twitter has grown over the past three years in terms of number of tweets per day. Twitter users were tweeting 5,000 times a day in 2007. By year 2008, that number was 300,000 per day, and by 2009 it had grown to 2.5 million per day.

Tweets grew 1,400% last year to 35 million per day. Today, Twitter gets 50 million tweets per day (Now I understand why Twitter home page goes unavailable so often lately) We are talking about 600 tweets per second. Tweet deliveries are a much higher number because once created, tweets must be delivered to multiple followers. Tweets per day is just one number to think about. We’ll make time to share more information so please stay tuned.
