Twitter surpasses 10 billion Tweets milestone According to the Gigatweet counter, the incredibly popular social network service Twitter has hit 10 billion "tweets," seeing fast growth from past milestones.
1 billion tweets was hit in November 2008, and 5 billion was hit in November 2009.

Given the current pace of tweeting, Gigatweet has projections for when future milestones will hit, with 20 billion coming as soon as 197 days from now, or about mid-September.

as dragnandy shown one person can say a ton of shit by himself on one day so obviously 10 billion tweets doesnt mean there are 10 billion twits but theres a fair amount nontheless. kudos for the pun
