10 Billion Tweets Served

The Internet's premier hub for bite-sized conversation has reached a major milestone: according to tweet ID numbers, the site’s users have surpassed 10 billion tweets. Only four months ago Twitter passed the 5 billion mark on the 140-character updates, used by everyone from publicity-hungry celebrities to protestors in Iran. The contents of tweet #10,000,000,000 are unknown, as the user has protected their updates, but #999,999,999 (a link to an gallery of urban photography) and #10,000,000,0001 (a simple phrase: "DON'T U EVER") are viewable online.
