Number of Tweets Surpass World Population
By on December 19th, 2009

Twitter has taken over the world. As of today, the number of tweets are greater than the number of people on this planet.

The popular tweet counting service GigaTweet is showing the number of tweets as 6.83 Billion and the world population stands at 6.79 Billion according to Census.gov. GigaTweet also predicts that the number of tweets would reach 7 Billion in 5 days and   10 Billion in 96 days of time. With 25 Million tweets per day andover a million tweets every hour, this number sounds pretty reachable

This is another sign of the tremendous growth Twitter has been in past few months. However, one should keep in mind that this includes the countless retweets that people do. The original number of tweets might very well be less than 10% of this number.
