Japan Twitter users set new record on New Year’s Eve, with a staggering 6,939 Tweets sent per second (TPS), as revealed by Twitter on its blog on Thursday.

According to Twitter, the historical event took place at about 4 seconds after midnight on January 1, 2011, when Japanese Twitter users wished their followers and friends Happy New Year (‘Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu’).

Interestingly, Japan Twitter users broke the previous record when the Japanese team won over Denmark in the World Cup last year, which had 3,283 Tweets per second and is less than half of the new record.

In addition, Twitter said that the New Year’s Eve Twitter record of Japan smashed more than 68 separate times within a single 3-minute period.

Meanwhile, Twitter also saw that East Coast contributed a vital role as its time zone alone reached 3,000 TPS, almost the same record on the peak of the World Cup last year.
