Skype announced today that it has reached a milestone in internet usage. They had 32 million people logged onto their service at the same time. I had no idea Skype had become so popular. With the rising cost of long distance and telephone bills in general, you can save a lot of money and aggravation by communicating with Skype. The service works with both voice and video and can be accessed using cell phones, landlines, computers, and even television sets.
Here’s what people had to say on Twitter:
I remember when we celebrated 100,000 concurrents 😀 “Skype hits major milestone as 32 million people sign on at once” tnw.co/y5xCxi

I guess people aren’t really that excited about it, that was all I could find. Either way, people really seem to be taking advantage of the service. Congratulations Skype!
