A few months ago Mashable reported that Twitter has allocated 3% of their servers to cope with Bieber Fever. His fans generate such a huge amount of activity that when he tweets his account receives more than 60 @-replies per second for a while after he tweets

New Zealand contributes a whooping 0.12% of the worlds tweets
