Twitter Reaches 20 Billion Tweets

Twitter's come a long way since its June 2006 launch. It took a while for people to get into it, what with Facebook being the social networking site of choice, but a Japanese graphic designer tweeting something closely interpreted as, "So that means the barrage might come back later all at once." provided the microblogging site with its 20 billionth tweet. His reaction to being the 20 billionth tweet was, "It looks like I posted the 20 billionth tweet. I'm getting replies from people all over the world. It's scary. What are the chances? Maybe I'm going to die. Is it more amazing than winning the lottery? I thought it was a joke."

Now, here's some milestones to put things in perspective. Twitter reached its 15 billionth tweet two months ago and three months before that had its 10 billionth tweet, four years after the launch of the site.
