Asia Bizz: On March 22, 2012, the popular micro blogging site Twitter revealed that it has 14o million active users who make 340 million tweets everyday. The company said that at last there are more than 140 million active users and 340 Tweets a day.

This makes it more than 1 billion every day 3 days. Twitter is the most popular micro blogging site in the world today where users cannot post a message bigger than 140 characters.

Surprisingly, this is the reason the service has grown so rapidly and allows people to post quick and concise thoughts in real time. Twitter, in a blog, revealed that the idea of the website was born when @Jack, Jack Dorsey, the current executive chairman of the company, sketched out his idea in March 2006.

Twitter added that no one could have predicted the trajectory of this new communication tool then. But now it seems that there are as many ways to express yourself in 140 characters as there are people who are actually doing it. The social networking site is equally popular among celebrities who feel free to express their thoughts and also get in touch with other fellow celebrities in open.
