It seems that the first ever tweet was today, 21 March https://twitter.com/jack/status/29#

Twitter stats

•3 years, 2 months and 1 day. The time it took from the first Tweet to the billionth Tweet.
•1 week. The time it now takes for users to send a billion Tweets.

•140 million. The average number of Tweets people sent per day, in the last month.
•177 million. Tweets sent on March 11, 2011.
•456. Tweets per second (TPS) when Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009 (a record at that time).

Twitter is stupid.

But since Google's sampling the feed, we gotta be part of the matrix. I've got an account up and running and am doing occassional tweets. And if I had $1 for every follower, I'd have change back from a $20. But I've been at it one week, and my followers are real people.

>Twitter is stupid.

I guess it's only a system. ;)

I've found some great info on twitter that I probably wouldn't have found for a while, if at all.

There are still lots of folks that continue to pump out nonsense tweets, and they are not on my follow list.

Gloss over all the hype and nonsense, and you'll find some good content.

Twitter is just another channel to gain some visitors.

People with websites must have a Twitter channel feeded with the rss channel of their website and then, search for some followers who like these content.

It's only one channel more; if you have a website you must fulfill a lot of them: Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn... Google, Bing...

You can't ignore the figures! Twitter and FB are here for the long term.

Must get head around them properly when I have time... LOL
