Number 10,000!

29 Apr 2011

I'm a big fan of statistics and numbers that are nice and round for human consumption. I just reached my 10,000th tweet on Twitter and thought I'd celebrate by writing up a blog post.

tl;dr - Just read the bullet points...

Having 10,000 of anything is quite a big achievement for something in my opinion. It's a much larger number than you can keep in your mind at any given time. I'm not trying to boast about this number, there are Twitter users with many times more (30,000+) tweets than myself. I just wanted to put a few things in perspective for fun.

I joined twitter on 08/08/08 and have been tweeting over 10 times per day, or once every two and a half hours since then. Some days, weeks, months, more than others, but that's how averages work. To put that into perspective:

In the Twitterverse:

In the real world:

What's in store for the next 10,000 tweets? Probably nothing that's not in the first 10,000. I don't plan on changing any time soon, but I imagine that Twitter will likely figure out a bit more of it's business plan by then. I'll be pissed about one thing or another during that time, complain about it, and then go on living my life.
