Twitter Reaches New Record: 200 Million Tweets Per Day

Steven Blum

For Twitter, this is quite a shining moment. Today the sexting favorite of U.S. representatives has reached a new record: 200 million tweets per day. 

For perspective, 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.



The company has also released the top Twitter topics of the past 6 months, which include infamous online celebrities (Charlie Sheen, Rebecca Black), dictators (Mubarak) and viruses (H1N1). Hooray! 

If you'll excuse me, I have to go tweet about the tuna melt I just ate.
