DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the bird in the Twitter icon is named Larry? Larry the Bird’s design was based on a mountain bluebird and is composed of overlapping circles. It was named after Larry Bird, the former professional basketball player. Biz Stone, a co-founder of Twitter, was a Boston native, and this was his way of paying homage to the basketball hall-of-famer who played for the Boston Celtics for all 13 seasons of his career. The Twitter icon is a bird because ‘twitter’ means ‘chirps from birds.’ Another reason why the founders named Twitter Twitter is because they came across another definition of the word: a short burst of inconsequential information.
Since Twitter’s founding in 2006, the social media platform has become one of the most visited websites of all time. Twitter has nearly as much active users as the US population, with 310 million active users per month. 6,000 tweets are tweeted every second, which translates to 350,000 tweets per minute, 500 million tweets per day, and 200 billion tweets per year. To reach the first billion tweets, it took Twitter 3 years, 2 months, and 1 day. Today, it only takes less than two days for a billion tweets to be sent.
