written by skyline - Comments off
Good Evening fans from Skyline Marketing in Exeter, Devon. We’ve had another busy day in the office. Cheltenham has been on in the background, Rob’s tips are truly shocking – (just incase he ever offers you a racing tip!) It’s definitely got us in the mood for a few meets this year, hopefully at Exeter or Newton Abbot Racecourses, or maybe even a bit further up the M5 past Taunton and Bristol to Ascot!
This week Twitter has a Billion reasons to be celebrating it’s 5th birthday. To mark the landmark, Twitter has released some very interesting statistics to show us the effect it has had on the World.
On average, a billion tweets are sent every single week now. 140 Million tweets are sent a day – the figure a massive 100 Million up from the same time last year!
Nearly 500,000 new accounts are created every single day, with Twitter now boasting over 200 million accounts worldwide. That is an 182% increase over the last year.
The most random statistic comes from the 25th June 2009, the date of the death of Michael Jackson. 456 tweets were sent every second! Having said that, this record was broken in Japan four seconds into 2011, when 6,939 tweets were posted in one second!
Twitter now employs 400 staff, whereas back in 2008 it only employed eight.
Is anyone seriously still underestimating the power of Social Media and Twitter?
A business that has no use for Twitter and a well designed Social Media Internet Marketing campaign, is a business clearly with nothing to say to its customers – if this is not the case, pick up the phone and make the call that will change your future – Skyline Marketing 01392 243210.
