It then occurred to me earlier that I didn’t actually know how many tweets I read in two months… the answer appears to be over 40,000.
I thought about the only useful thing I could probably do in the short term was make a pretty graph of the rate of tweet flying past my friends timeline per day… so here it is:
Other interesting facts:
- @TelegraphNews accounts for 6% of the throughput
- 62 tweets contain the word “argh”
- 350 mentioned “facebook”
I may get around to thinking up new and more interesting stuff to do with this data later… maybe 🙂
