Twitter Traffic Doubled On U.S. Election Night, Here Are Some Tweets
A study of Internet usage on election night suggests, that folks in the United States still trust television networks over the web when it comes to important, breaking stuff. Social networks, however, continued to be a user favorite as people came in huge numbers to express their feelings and emotions over this year’s election results.
Twitter is an online news and social networking service where users post and read short 140-character messages called "tweets". Users with an account on Twitter can post as well as read tweets from different people, but those who are unregistered can only read them. Twitter was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams and launched in July, whereby the service rapidly gained worldwide popularity.
According to TechCrunch, Netflix – which is typically the largest source of internet traffic in North America – saw a huge decline. Its traffic levels dropped by 25% compared with the previous day. However, Sandvine believes that those levels will return to normal tonight.
The findings are based on a sample of U.S. fixed access network on the East Coast that has been fairly representative of national traffic in the past, notes Sandvine. But these figures are still preliminary for the time being and may be updated later in the day.
