Twitter turns six years old today, reports The Next Web.

A few interesting facts from their reporting:

  • it took Twitter 3 years, 2 months, and 1 day to reach one billion tweets
  • it took 18 months for the first 500,000 users to sign up
  • Twitter saw 250 million tweets per day in October 2011, a number that’s almost certainly higher now
  • Twitter’s advertising revenue is expected to triple by 2014, hitting over $540 million, up from an estimated $260 million this year
