Over one billion served

That's right readers, just a couple of days ago Twitter received its one billionth update. The image below shows where it stands at the time of this posting.

Let's think about this, because the velocity and volume here are staggering.

Some questions to think about and talk around are:

  • If Twitter is not even mainstream, the growth could be exponential. How can we handle this much data? RSS only helps so much.
  • There is a massive amount of information here, a majority of which is just noise. How are you finding the signal?

What other questions does this bring to mind for you? What do you think?
