Someone Lit a Match in a Dry Forest

Breaking News. Someone (in San Francisco) set a match in a dry forest with lots of dead leaves and brush with the right temperature and wind level and there is no water in sight.

A fire, you ask? In San Francisco?

Oh Yes. A fire. A huge, consuming everything in its sight fire (except for the more stubborn, moist logs that just smolder)...

Ok, let me get to the point. This is a Twitter fire. Twire? This fire has actually been growing for the last 12 months and has grown by 1382%. Or is you are more of a "show me the proof" kind of person, it looks like this:

February, 2008 -> February, 2009
475,000 users -> 7,038,000 users.

And the population group this wild fire is consuming the fastest? 35-49 years of age. Social media is not just for kids anymore...

Hi Mom!! :)

Let me properly attribute these figures...Nielson Wire highlights this growth in Twitters Tweet Smell of Success.
