Imagine how much paper is consumed and how much money is spent to print the entire post.
If you printed Twitter …
- the seven billion tweets to date are composed of 104,860,000,000 words, as many as 133,000 copies of the the King James version of the Bible.
- it would cover 350 million sheets of paper, which is 37 times the number of pages used in bills introduced in the United States Congress since 1955.
- the paper would weigh three and a half million pounds, the equivalent of 82 school buses fully loaded with 84 happily tweeting kids.
- and did nothing but read tweets throughout the entire work day, it would take 2,912 years to get through it.
- and laid the pages end to end, they would stretch 60,763 miles or two and a half times around the earth.
- on an average HP Inkjet printer, it would cost you $24,500,000 to print in black ink or $55,606,250 to include the Twitter blue.
- keeping up with the 26 million tweets daily would require 30 inkjet printers working around the clock to print more than 1,300,000 pages every day.
