I think in megabits per second, not megabytes per second. If I said megabytes on Monday night, apologies.
This rate is now easy enough to deduce. A JSON tweet is about 1,400 bytes. We announced 50mm tweets per day: 50000000 * 1400 / (24*3600) * 8 6481480 Or 6.4mbit, average. Peak rate is somewhat higher than the average. So, very, very roughly... -John On Tue, Mar 2, 2010 at 9:15 PM, M.
