Itâ€™s official: Twitter has surpassed 10 billion tweets. While Gigatweetâ€™s counter is down due to over-traffic, you can tell by the actual tweet ID numbers that we have crossed the magical threshold.
So who was the lucky person that sent out tweet 10 billionth tweet? Weâ€™re checking now and will let you know ASAP.
Update: Tweet #10 billion apparently belongs to a protected user, as API calls wonâ€™t allow us to see that specific status update. Via @timdorr, here is Tweet #9,999,999,999 and tweet #10,000,000,001.
We want to also point out that the 10 billionth tweet doesnâ€™t necessarily correlate to the actual 10 billionth tweet â€” tweet IDs have been tweaked several times due to technical issues such as Twitpocalypse. Still, itâ€™s close enough, so now itâ€™s time to look to the future and count down towards 20 billion tweets!
