Twitter has reached a new milestone, it’s users now send 200 million tweets per day and the figure becomes quite impressive when one considers that in January 2009, 2 million tweets were sent per day. And a year ago, the daily tweet tally stood at 65 million a day and Twitter also looked at the most-popular topics on its site during the first six months of the year. According to Twitter, pop singer Rebecca Black was the top topic in pop culture so far this year, followed by Britney Spears’ album Femme Fatale and Charlie Sheen. Swine Flu, Hosni Mubarak and Easter were the top world-events topics on the site. Twitter’s growth over the years has been strong even through difficult times.
