If we put this into perspective, Twitter say this is equivalent to a 10 million page book in tweets, or 8,163 copies of Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace, each and every day! If you were to read this much text, it would take an astounding 31 years. Twitter also released the top Trending Topics for the first half of 2011:
