3,000 Tweets per Second

Very cool to see how the traffic surged on the announcement of OBL’s death, from Twitter’s Global PR (Tweeted, of course).

The Tweet saturation was the highest Twitter ever recorded, at a sustained rate averaging 3,000 per second.

The below chart shows the traffic from 9:30pm to 12:30am EST.
