Today, we talked mostly about social media. Given that there are, on average, 340 million tweets per day on Twitter right now, we calculated how much it costs to store tweets on Twitter per day. We found that there are at least 47GB worth of tweets per day, which from one perspective sounds large. However, if we consider that this value represents most significant events in the entire world for the day in question (plus a lot of junk), it actually becomes a bit amazing that 47GB can store all of this data.

I gave examples for North Korea and some other “trending” topics.

See this blog post that relates to what I spent a good chunk of my spring break doing, along with my brother at Room214 in Boulder.
