I don't know anything about "gardenhose", but I do have some data from
"sample". Assuming Twitter's published number of 50 million tweets per
day is the full firehose (minus spam, according to the blog post),
I've estimated that a typical weekday on "sample" is delivering over 3
percent of the total tweet volume.
My peak from "sample" this past week was 95,006 tweets for the hour
starting "2010-02-24 01:59:59 +0000". The average JSON tweet is about
1400 bytes. That peak represents a bit rate of about 300 K bits per
