Just this past weekend, what is believed to be the 20 billionth tweet was posted on Twitter:

Now, what we here at Wajam find especially interesting about this development is the amount of content that people are sharing on Twitter. If we look at this Twitter message types data that was compiled by Website Monitoring, we can see that 16% of tweets include links to news, images, videos, and other web content. In other words, 1 in every 6 tweets contains a link.

So how many links have been shared on Twitter?

If we crunch the numbers, 3.2 billion links have been shared on Twitter so far, and that number is growing fast! That’s a lot of content.

So where does Wajam come in? Glad you asked. Wajam can help you access that content when you need it, but that’s all we’ll say for now…

We’re curious to know how you save and share content you like, we’d really appreciate it if you took our short survey to share your thoughts with us.
