Tweets climb to 400 million per day

Want to know the total number of tweets people send in a day?

According to a report by CNET, about 400 million tweets are sent by Twitter users up from 340 million a month ago.

Another fact that they would like to divulge is that majority of these 400 million tweets are sent via mobile and not desktop computers.

Twitter CEO, Dick Costolo, revealed this at an interview at the Economist’s Ideas Economy: Information 2012 conference.

Costolo said, “Because tweets are 140 characters, and born of mobile and constrained that way, when we designed the ad platform our ads would go everywhere tweets go, and the only way is if the ads are tweets. We have an ad platform that is already inherently suited to mobile. Even though we launched the ad platform on the Web already, a couple of weeks ago we saw mobile revenue in a day greater than non-mobile.”

“The fascinating thing about big numbers is you get macro trends and events, and incredible personal moments where you have to dive all the way to see things,” he added.

Costolo also said that he isn’t thinking about the idea of IPO. Unlike his counterpart Mark Zuckerberg, he isn’t toying with the possibility of going public.
