Today marks Twitter’s 6th birthday. And a milestone.
Not only did the ever so popular social site Twitter, notorious for the platforms 140 character tweets turn 6, they also announced they have 140 million active users as well. That’s not all. If you were like me you’d be a little skeptical saying something to the effect of,” Yeah sure 140 million active users, how many of those accounts are really “active”. ”
To squash that thought Twitter also announced that they are seeing 340 million tweets go out a day! That’s over 1 billion every 3 days. (see official quote from Twitter below.) Pretty nice birthday gift to ones self don’t you think?
Still skeptical of Twitter? We’re not and if you are a business owner you shouldn’t be either. Twitter and social media marketing need to be in your marketing plan.

Now it seems that there are as many ways to express yourself in 140 characters as there are people doing it. And at last check, there are more than 140 million active users (there’s that number again) — and today we see 340 million Tweets a day. That’s more than 1 billion every 3 days. However concisely, it turns out there’s plenty to say. – Official Twitter Blog Post
