From the Twitter blog
Well, that didn’t take long. Just four seconds after midnight in Japan on January 1st, Twitterers set an all-time record in the number of Tweets sent per second (TPS). At that moment, the world sent a staggering 6,939 TPS wishing friends and followers a fond “Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu” (“Happy New Year!”).
The photo below is a visualization of the US. The bigger the circle the more activity at that moment so I can’t tell if it is midnight in LA and the party is still going on the east coast or did the NY / LA TV thing at midnight EST create this activity? I just don’t know.
The Twitter blog has an interesting video showing this phenomenon happen across the globe.
So it is a strong start for Twitter in 2011. Will they be celebrating revenue numbers at the end of this year?
