Twitter is a social networking service that allows users to send and read short 140 character messages posted on a profile page. Typically, 4 billion messages or tweets are sent in a 3 month period. Usage spikes during prominent events. 2,940 tweets were sent every second for the 30 second period following Japan scoring against Cameroon in the 2010 FIFA World Cup on June 14.
