Twitter handling 24 billion search queries per month

Twitter Search Bar

Twenty four billion. That is how many times users are searching Twitter per month; a truly gargantuan figure. Twitter co-founder Biz Stone noted that twitter.com now handles roughly 800 million search queries per day, a 33% increase from April of this year. To put that number in perspective, Yahoo! handles roughly 9.4 billion search queries per month, while Bing handles around 4.1 billion. Almost makes you a bit more tolerant of the fail whale, now doesn’t it.
