Bin Laden may not have ruled the world but surely last 24 hours were all for him – On Web. Latest, Twitter has revealed that the death of Osama Bin Laden was one of the most tweeted event in history with highest sustained rate of tweets ever. It was 12.4 million tweets which were sent each hour related to Bin Laden’s death.

As per the latest stats released by twitter last night, around 5000 tweets were sent each second just before and after the speech of U.S. president Barak Obama. Earlier, the social media company claimed to witness around 4000 tweets per second on its platform which later changed with 25% higher volume.

At 11:00 p.m. ET, just before Obama’s speech, users generated 5,106 tweets per second, the highest single volume of tweets during the night. At 11:45 p.m., just when he finished his speech, Twitter users were sending 5,008 tweets per second.

“Last night saw the highest sustained rate of Tweets ever,” Twitter announced in a tweet. “From 10:45 – 2:20am ET, there was an average of 3,000 Tweets per second.” That equates to a whopping 27,900,000 tweets in just two hours and 35 minutes.

Between 10:45 p.m. ET and 12:30 a.m. ET, the company says its users averaged 3,440 tweets per second. While on its peak, Twitter delivered an average of 12,384,000 tweets per hour.

These stats are only from a single platform of communication and we still need to analyze many others like Facebook, Stubleupon etc. However, abiding by this we can understand how much people were snooping about Osama Bin Laden.

The event surpasses the 3,283 tweets sent per second during Japan’s victory over Denmark in the World Cup, and the 4,064 tweets sent per second during one of the final moments of this year’s Super Bowl.

However, the record for most tweets sent in the same second is still 6,939 — which happened during the most recent New Year in Japan.
