The micro-blogging site Twitter continues its meteoric rise.
While the Twitter community network had surpassed the 10 billion messages (or tweets) from its launch in 2006 to March 2010, the figure of 20 billion tweets was reached only four months after the July 31, 2010.
With over 1000 tweets sent per second (the record being 3283 tweets/s), the meteoric rise of Twitter is easily explained. A simple concept, and very practical widely used by a segment of the population converted to the benefits of shifting social networks. And as you can see on the counter Site Gigatweet, this increase is not ready to stop.
Just as Facebook, which recently announced to have reached the prodigious figure of half a billion active users, Twitter also sees its membership base is actually growing in a way more important than Facebook or MySpace. A few weeks ago, Twitter announced and generated two billion messages per month, and 135,000 new registrations per day.
