Twitter By The Numbers
Twitter has been connecting people all over the world for a long time now…but ‘that’ famous #Oscarselfie still rules the roost of the ‘Most Retweeted Tweet’ at 3.3million retweets, with the most mentioned person being everyone’s favourite Justin Bieber with 943 million likes. And #FF (FollowFriday) is the most mentioned hashtag at 539 million times (that’s a lot of following!).
So there’s no doubt that what Twitter has achieved is an incredible feat. But what’s next for the blue birded Social Media platform?

Red Bull frequently use Periscope for broadcasting many of the live events that they hold.
