60 Billion Tweets Sent Out in 2011 Revealed Twiiter Year In Review: The Year in Stories

TwitterTwitter has just posted “2011 Year In Review: The Year in Stories” — “The December edition of Twitter Stories highlights ten remarkable moments of 2011. Around the world, people sent more than 60 billion Tweets in 2011, each one reflecting a particular perspective and point in time.”

“To choose just ten of these to sum up the year is virtually impossible. Instead of attempting to identify the “most important” Tweets of the year, we’re recognizing ten Tweets that are emblematic of the many resonant moments that happened first on Twitter– or could only happen on Twitter,” writes Twitter.

Twitter says “From the man who inadvertently live-tweeted the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound to the homeless dad who was reunited with his daughter after years of separation, this list, which doubles as the annual “Year in Stories,” chronicles how people use Twitter to make a difference in ways that are both personal and universal.”

As these instances show, a single Tweet can bring you closer to neighbors and heroes, immerse you in political change or disaster relief. You might even get a steak dinner where you least expect it.
