Twitter launched on March 21, 2006, and things were never the same again. It took 3 years, 2 months, and 1 day for the 1st billionth tweet. Nowadays, one billion tweets are tweeted weekly… More than 200 million tweets are tweeted daily… and Riyadh is the 10 city worldwide in terms of number of tweets.
Some 170 billion tweets have been sent and exchanged since those early days, and Twitter now boasts more than 300 million active users and an increasingly important presence in the mobile social space. Accordingly, Twitter, Inc has become a viable business, too, with more than 900 employees and an estimated value of at least $10 billion.
