Twitter Hits 250 Million Tweets Per Day

At the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo has revealed an interesting milestone. Twitter is now hitting 250 million tweets per day. Twitter has gone from 90 million tweets per day in September 2010 to 100 million at the beginning of the year. Now Twitter is at 250 million, which is a 177% change.

Twitter went from having 30% of its 100 million users active every day in January 2011 to over 50% active daily users. Costolo said “We think that we can be on 2 billion devices around the world, and reach every person on the planet, and the way to do that is through simplifying.”
