    I was wondering if there are any projects out there that "share" digital information using social media? For example, let's take twitter:

    Max users you can follow: 1000
    Max posts per user: 1000
    Max symbols per message: 140
    Symbol size: 8-bit? (couldn't find a good answer to character set support, but let's assume 256 chars supported)

    So in a single day, you could gather: 8*140*1000*1000 bits of data, or:

    140MB

    Interesting....
