(Newser) – In a terrifying sign of what our world has come to, Gizmodo reports that 3% of Twitter traffic is devoted to ... Justin Bieber. Designer Dustin Curtis tweeted a quote from a Twitter employee Monday: "At any moment, Justin Bieber uses 3% of our infrastructure. Racks of servers are dedicated to him." Seriously. Interestingly enough, it turns out most big Twitter users have their very own dedicated servers.
