Twitter now handles more than 200 million Tweets a day

Twitter hits latest milestone, recording more than 200 million Tweets a day - that's 1.5 billion Tweets per week!

Twitter has announced its latest milestone moment revealing earlier this week that it now handles more than 200 million separate tweets per day, almost 1.5 billion a week.

Founded in 2006, Twitter has seen adoption of its micro-blogging service soar over the past 12 months with the latest 200 million tweets a day figure eclipsing the 65 million tweets the company was handling on a daily basis at the same last year and the two million daily tweets being sent in January of 2009 - the same year it was rumoured to considering a buyout from Apple

Whilst roughly 20,000 Twitter users account for almost half of the site’s activity that includes a link, Twitter has seen its user figures continue to rise as it looks to close the gap on the world’s most popular social networking outlet, Facebook.

And much like Mark Zuckerberg's creation, the microblogging site has not been shy developing its business by spending some of its hard-earned advertising cash - and this year spent a whopping $40m on a Tweetdeck buyout

Although Facebook recently announced that it had surpassed the 750 million active user mark, figures from ComScore have suggested Twitter attracted 139 million unique users in May of this year taking the microblogging site past MySpace in terms of global traffic.

Can Twitter catch Facebook in the social media market or is Google’s new service the next big thing? Share your thoughts with us via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
