Infographics Archive has put together an infographic that shows the real history of Twitter in terms of statistics. It’s there to assist you understand the importance of Twitter as a social networking service, and also to tell the story of success that has not been seen before, except with Facebook, but then again that is a whole different story.

Did you, for instance, know that it took Twitter 3 years 2 months and 1 day to achieve a billion tweets? Nowadays we all tweet a billion tweets within a week. Talk about an rise that comes with growing pains, which is something that we have seen Twitter battle through it’s lifespan. But they always look to figure it out, and it’s inspiring to see how they truly do fix any troubles that occur, and quite fast as well I might add.

That’s something that I haven’t seen on Facebook. They always change and switch things around, and more than frequently, stuff stays broken for a day or two before they really fix it. So, this is one point that I guess goes to Twitter.

Job Well Done!
