Twitter launched its microblogging service five years ago today and the company is marking the occasion by doling out some impressive usage stats.

Currently, about 600,000 people sign up for a Twitter account every day, but it took Twitter almost a year-and-a-half to attract its first 600,000 members, the company said on Friday in its official Twitter feed.

In its first day, users sent 224 “tweets,” which is the number the current user base sends every tenth of a second.

Meanwhile, the company’s engineering team disclosed on its own feed that users send 350 billion tweets every day.
