London, Aug 1 (ANI):
Twitter, the micro-blogging site, which allows users express themselves in up
to 140 characters, has had its 20 billionth message posted.

GGGGGGo_Lets_Go, a Tokyo
graphic designer for an advertising agency, sent the landmark and rather opaque
tweet on Saturday.

“So that means the
barrage might come back later all at once,” he wrote.

Twitter took four years to
reach its 10 billionth tweet, in March this year, and less than five months to
double it.

GGGGGGo_Lets_Go was
inundated with congratulatory messages from around the world for hitting the
milestone with a tweet, which appeared to have been part of a longer
conversation with another user.

He later posted another
message, saying: “Looks like I posted the 20 billionth tweet. I’m getting
replies from people all over the world. It’s scary. What are the chances? Maybe
I’m going to die,” reports the BBC.

“Is it more amazing than winning the lottery? I
thought it was a joke.” (ANI)
