Over 1,000 Twitter applications have been created, 50 million daily tweets. ** Starting point of the curve: March 2006 when Twitter was formed by Evan Williams when he worked for a podcasting company he co-founded, Odeo in Silicon Valley. ** Ultimate Limiting Phenomenon: Based on an Oct 2009 study by www.royal.pingdom.com, the highest number of tweets per hour measured was 1,841,289. Twitter is projected to process 10 billion tweets/year. ** Twitter can only handle so many users at one time. During the 2010 Super Bowl, Twitter was brought down 20 times. In Dec, 2009, Twitter was hacked and defaced by the “Iranian Cyber Army” showing its vulnerability to hacking and denial of service. ** According to RJ Metrics, in Dec 2009, only 17% of Twitter accounts posted tweets, down from 70% in early 2007
