A week after Twitter raised a reported 100 million dollars in it’s fifth round of funding, there has been much speculation about… well, pretty much anything and everything Twitter-ish. I came across a posting by Ben Parr on Mashable that listed 5 stats from a recent research report, these numbers are just insane:
