Twitter Currently Down: 20 billionth tweet

There are two important things that we need to tell you about Twitter, the first is that they have now reached their 20 billionth tweet and the second is that the micro-blogging site is down for planned maintenance. We do not know how long it has been down for, but it says it will be back in a few hours.

Twitter comes back then goes straight back down again, which must be frustrating for all those Justin Bieber fans. We hope that the site will stabilize soon, as they will want to offer up their reactions to the Marquez and Diaz fight that took place yesterday.

As for that 20 billionth tweet, this was great to see and shows how popular Twitter has become over the past few months. The 10 billionth tweet took four years to achieve and just five months to double that figure – showing the growth of the micro-blogging site.

As for the Tweet itself, it was from a Japanese user called “GGGGGGo_Lets_Go”. Do not ask me what the Tweet was about, but AP has some more details and has tried to decipher what it means.
