The graph on the page is worth seeing !
t was a big day at Twitter HQ today and it's not even noon yet. We saw 5x normal tweets-per-second and about 4x tweets-per-minute as this chart illustrates. Overall, Twitter sailed smoothly through the inauguration but at the peak, some folks did experience a 2-5 minute delay receiving updates. We'll be analyzing this later today so that during the next massively shared global event there is no appreciable delay. Exciting!
