Twitter Stats: This Is (The Start) Of What We Wanted

By - February 22, 2010


Twitter just posted a shot across the bow of those who claim the service is not growing anymore. Measuring tweets per day, the post gives us a glimpse into the growth of the service.

Er….up and to the right. From the post: “Tweet deliveries are a much higher number because once created, tweets must be delivered to multiple followers. Then there’s search and so many other ways to measure and understand growth across this information network. Tweets per day is just one number to think about. We’ll make time to share more information so please stay tuned..”

It’s good to see this from Twitter, and I’m looking forward to more. For my thoughts on what more might be, see my post from last week Friday Signal: What Marketers Want from Twitter Metrics.

  1. This will be the begining of the full scale monetization of Tweets

    Oh John, is there a fad you don’t embrace?

    Now strip out all the tweets that are placed by bots and those that come from third party apps, which they do not control whatsoever, and you do not have the same trajectory.

    Looks like some serious growth. I’m looking forward to future posts on twitter. Keep ’em coming.

    Agree with jimjerky. I’d bet that a majority of that growth in the past year is people simply funneling RSS into twitter.
