Twitter Hits 50 Million Tweets Per Day

According to a story on Mashable, new stats released by Twitter reveal that users now send out more than 50 million tweets per day. That means every second, 600 tweets fly through Twitter’s network.

As reported two weeks ago, Twitter saw more than 1.2 billion tweets in January, or around 39 million tweets per day. These numbers came from Royal Pingdom and not Twitter itself, though.

The new numbers blow past Pingdom’s stats. Some of the highlights:

– In 2007, around 5,000 tweets were sent per day.

– By 2008, the number grew to 300,000 tweets per day.

– By 2009, around 2.5 million tweets were sent through Twitter every single day.

– Tweet growth shot up by 1,400% in 2009, reaching 35 million tweets per day by the end of the year.

– As of now, Twitter sees 50 million tweets created per day.
