Coffee costs businesses $2.25 billion annually.

Ok, I totally made that statistic up.

According to the BBC:

Staff who use Twitter and other social networking sites while at work are costing UK businesses £1.38bn (about $2.25 bn) every year, a report has said.

Every new technology that comes along attracts an endless parade of analysts who use questionable math to determine these figures. I wonder how much productivity was lost when photocopiers were introduced to the workplace.

I’m willing to be that more people on average drink coffee during work hours, often several times per day, than use Twitter. Forget about social networking. Let’s kill the coffee drinking productivity killer.
