Did you know that Twitter now has over 140 million active users who tweet 340 million times every day? Or that the average Twitter user has 126 followers, 40 percent of Twitter users never tweet at all and 0.05 percent of Twitter’s total population attract almost 50 percent of all users?

Did you ever hope that somebody would make a movie about Twitter?
After all, it worked brilliantly for Facebook with The Social Network, so why not our favourite micro-blogging platform, too?
Well, I have some great news. The first Twitter movie is finally here!
As we’ve mentioned before, Twitter hosts a quarterly Hack Week where employees take time away from their regular work to collaborate and come up with new ideas. Twitter encourages its employees to try new things around the company and work on projects they’re passionate about. Very cool.
This time around, some teams focused on learning coding and the result was another pretty hilarious video.
Twitter has reached its sixth birthday, and to celebrate Twitter-fan Jimmy Kimmel asked some of his celebrity pals to read some of the meanest and (in some cases) really quite offensive tweets that have been sent to them by “fans”, while, for full effect, REM’s Everybody Hurts plays along in the background.
Back in May 2009, Twitter employed just 69 people. Fast-forward to the present and the microblogging company now has more than 700 names on its staff roster, and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down the hiring process.
Check out Twitter’s jobs page, and you’ll see dozens of openings. The bird is, essentially, always hiring. In fact, they’re so keen to recruit new people, that they’ve made a short video to show just how great it is to work at Twitter… with hilarious results.
Whichever way you look at it, 2011 was a huge year.
It had more than a little of everything: the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, political scandal and revolution, the deaths of several major celebrities and tech giants, the farce that was President Obama’s birth certificate, a Royal Wedding, the raid on Osama Bin Laden (and Colonel Gaddafi), the ‘Rapture’, the final space shuttle mission, Google+, the London riots, Facebook Timeline, a new iPhone, a world population of 7 billion and, uh, Rebecca Black.
And all of it was documented on Twitter – live, and in real-time.
During a press conference at their new San Francisco HQ, Twitter has unveiled a brand new design for Twitter.com (and also the iPhone and Android apps) – Lauren has already covered this in detail here. It’s a HUGE update, at least aesthetically, but also has some new features which are worth checking out.
Twitter has put together this video showing how the new design will look and work – which is great if you don’t yet have access to the Twitter.com revamp.
Back in August we looked at an infographic from market research specialists Lab42 that surveyed 500 adults on Twitter to enquire about how and why they use the network.
Now, website video firm Wyzowl has taken this content and converted it into an attractive series of moving images. So what do you get when you combine an infographic with video? You got it: a videographic.
