Pingdom (a service that monitors website uptime and performance) released new stats today, Twitter saw an all-time high of more than 1.2 billion tweets in January.

Here are some more interesting observations:

  • December 2009 was the first month Twitter processed more than one billion tweets (with 1.036 billion tweets).
  • January 2010 had 16 times as many tweets as January 2009.
  • The activity on Twitter has doubled since August 2009.
  • January 2010 saw more tweets per day (39.5 million) than the whole of September 2008.

The information coming from Pingdom provides another indicator that the activity/behavior of tweeting/status updating is still on the rise.

Hat tip to Mashable and Adam Ostrow for finding these stats.
