Twitter Handles 24 Billion Queries Per Month

Twitter is a growing website. Since April it is handling 33 percent more queries taking it up to 800 Million queries per day or 24 billion per month. The information comes from the co-founder Biz Stone who spoke recently at the Aspen Ideas Festival.

It’s hard to compare Twitter’s monthly query volume to that of Microsoft’s Bing or Yahoo, since worldwide figures for their traffic are fairly old. Comscore reported that Bing was supporting 4.1 billion monthly queries worldwide while Yahoo was handling 9.4 billion in December.

It’s certainly interesting and an incredible amount of queries being handled per month. Will the growth continue through the next quarter? We’d like to think so and will report back if numbers are revealed again soon.
