Twitter – Milestones
Twitter has achieved yet another milestone on June 30, 2011, it’s users now send 200 million tweets per day. A billion tweets are sent every five days on Twitter. This is up from 65 million tweets per day a year ago. Two years ago, just 10 million tweets were sent per day.
Twitter announced on their official blog on June 30, 2011:
Halfway through 2011, users on Twitter are now sending 200 million Tweets per day. For context on the speed of Twitter’s growth, in January of 2009, users sent two million Tweets a day, and one year ago they posted 65 million a day.

To put the latest figure into perspective, Twitter also provided a visualization of this amazing feat with a graphical example on their blog:
Every day, the world writes the equivalent of a 10 million-page book in Tweets or 8,163 copies of Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace. Reading this much text would take more than 31 years and stacking this many copies of War and Peace would reach the height of about 1,470 feet, nearly the ground-to-roof height of Taiwan’s Taipei 101, the second tallest building in the world.
