Digimind Infographic: Twitter's 2011 Tweets-Per-Second Record

Share Article

Digimind, a leading provider of web intelligence and social media monitoring, has created an infographic showing Twitter's tweets per second record of 2011

2011 was a year of major milestones. The human population hit the 7 billion mark and social media edged towards saturation, with Facebook reaching 800 million subscribers and 100 million of us actively using Twitter. Instantaneous communication has never been easier. Real-time coverage of events has shaped the way we consume news and we've seen a dramatic increase in the volume of tweets published every second.

In May, the capture of Osama bin Laden created a record of 5,106 tweets per second. But a much more light-hearted announcement generated a new record on 28 May with 8,868 tweets per second; the news of the pregnancy of the singer/actress Beyoncé. However, a whole new level was reached when the 20,000 tweets per second mark was crossed in Japan, on 9 December, during the television broadcast of the famous cartoon by Hayao Miyazaki, Castle in the Sky: 25,088 tweets per second.
