Twitter 2011: One Billion Tweets Every 5 Days (And Other Record-Breaking Events) [INFOGRAPHIC]

2011 was a huge year for Twitter, with the social platform breaking records left, right and centre.

The Japanese celebration of the New Year started the ball rolling, and in May, Beyoncé’s pregnancy announcement at the MTV Video Music Awards set a new tweets per second (TPS) record on Twitter. Despite a host of major events, including earthquakes in Japan and the USA, the death of Steve Jobs and the raid on Osama Bin Laden, this record stood until December, when it was beaten by, of all things, the television airing of a 25-year old Japanese movie.

Even more impressively, Twitter logged an incredible one billion tweets every five days in 2011. This infographic from Digimind takes a closer look at this record-breaking year.
