Is Twitter hot these days? You betcha it is!
During the last couple months of 2009, Twitter has EXPLODED into the World, almost doubling its web traffic every 30 days.
Here’s a couple graphs why Twitter might be just starting out:
Digg versus Twitter – Note that Digg has been around for awhile but Digg never got as big as Twitter. (Think of getting twitted instead digged these days…)
StumbleUpon versus Twitter – StumbleUpon has been a good source of traffic for many bloggers and alike but nothing compared to Twitter at this point.
The great news is that the “peak” of Twitter might not be reached for another couple years. If that’s the case, it’s going to make Digg, StumbleUpon, and NYTimes like pins in haystacks.
One thing I am worried is, can Twitter keep up with the traffic demands of the world? Seeing the birds and the whale frequently is not a good sign, they really need to upgrade servers or make things run faster. I am sure they will in time but in the meantime, we will just have to be satisfied our favorite Web 2.0 communication platform flat out beats all other Web 2.0 social networking sites.
