Of course, this just the average. Heavy news stories like Michael Jackson's death, awards shows like the Grammys, and events like the Super Bowl can equal 10s of thousands of tweets per minute (just check out this graph detailing this year's Super Bowl in tweets). Fifty million tweets per day equals roughly 600 per second. Take into account that every single posted tweet is saved and delivered to millions of followers and, well, let's just say I'm sure the engineers at Twitter HQ have no shortage of things to keep them busy!
