Twitter Postings Up, Up, Up…..

Twitter postings appear to be growing through the roof, and some days I feel like I am receiving them all. Not so, says Kevin Weil, writing in the twitter blog.

All y’all 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, Weil is seeing 50 million tweets per day—that's an average of 600 tweets per second.

Deliveries are a much higher number because once created, tweets must be delivered to multiple followers. Weil has a nice chart that won’t copy into this blog, so take a look at his original post.
