Twitter Search Queries Up 33%, 24 Billion Searches Per Month
VentureBeat reports Twitter’s co-founder, Biz Stone saying that Twitter’s search volume is up 33%. That is 800 million queries a day or 24 billion search queries per month, up from 19 billion as reported in April.
24 billion is a huge number, it is larger than Yahoo and Bing, almost as large as them together. It is only 27% of the search queries Google sees, but again, it is huge.
Biz Stone announced these numbers yesterday at the Aspen Ideas Festival.
