To date, Twitter has more than 500 million active users, generating over 340 million tweets daily. Though the social media site seems to have exploded out of nowhere, it took approximately five years for the company to gain enough public acknowledgement and in 2007, Twitter strategically marketed its benefits at the South by Southwest Conference by tweeting live feeds of the event. The social media site’s daily posts increased threefold.

The Twitter Timeline infographic not only shows how the social media site gained its popularity, but also why it has become the go-to place for instantaneous updates.
