So, while the clocks are ticking and dates scrolling up, why not I tell you some cool statistics of what actually happened in the yar 2013 with some massive social environments. So today I am discussing on #TWITTER. Oh did I use that hash tag? 😀 Oh yeah, I did…!!!
Right from a simple and regular begun of this giant in early 2006, the growth of this media has gained a massive and integrating popularity worldwide. The provision of 140 character-ed message with an intention to share “Short and Sweet” has served its purpose very well.
So, twitter as described is considered to be the “SMS of Internet” reaching within the limits bound by Internet and 140 characters.
Well, firstly I would like to see your big big eyes rolling over this fantastic statistics from the beginning…….. So. once upon a time….. 😀 Oops sorry sorry…. Here I go :
The idea of originating TWITTER came to the podcasting company ODEO while brainstorming session. Sitting in a children’s park, enjoying Mexican food Dorsey came up with an idea to start an SMS service for a communication purpose.
I have observed that Multinationals like Google, Facebook, Twitter all have got one thing in common and that is everyone previously had made some wierd approach while naming their work. 😛 Talking about Twitter, originally the name of twitter was spelled as “TWTTR” inspired by image website “Flicker”.
In 2006 though the concept was unique twitter couldn’t gain the expected attention of “micro-blogging” thing until when the waves of popularity reached till Twitter in 2007 in a SouthWest festival where its usage hiked from 20000 tweets to 60000 tweets/day.
Twitter is not only famous on earth but also outside it. The first off-the-earth message was posted from International Space Station by NASA’s astraunaut T.J. Creamer on Jan 22, 2010.
Maybe one day some aliens might tweet that “Woweeee… Enjoying the new feel of Gravitational force #Earth #Humans 😀 “.
This is considered to be one of the most significant and trending moment on this platform regarding the sustainability of tweet.

When the speech began 4000 tweets/second were posted.
