There's an old English saying that goes, "Keep a thing seven years, and you'll always find a use for it." Well, today is Twitter's 7th birthday! Can you believe it's been seven years since this first historical tweet by co-founder Jack Dorsey?
just setting up my twttr- Jack Dorsey (@jack) March 21, 2006
Since then, Twitter has become a thriving social network platform with over 200 million active users that send more than 400 million tweets every day! Twitter has been an active part of spreading news for countless major global events uniting world audiences unlike ever before. So Twitter has released this touching video in thanks to all of the users that make the Twitterverse tick:
We're gratified that so many millions of you have made Twitter yours. It's thanks to all of you that our open, real-time platform is thriving: we have well over 200 million active users creating over 400 million Tweets each day. The steep trajectory of Twitter's momentum is something @jack, @ev and @biz only dreamed about back in 2006. As we've grown, Twitter has become a true global town square - a public place to hear the latest news, exchange ideas and connect with people all in real time. This is where you come to connect with the world at large. Get on your soapbox to critique elected officials, or go sotto voce to the neighbor next to you. And as in other gathering places, commerce happens too (and jokes and art-making and debating, and - you get the idea). We made a video celebrating some of the many moments on Twitter so far. Here's to your creativity, curiosity and experimentation on our platform. And again, thank you for making Twitter everything it is today. "
Happy birthday Twitter! #Twitter7 <Tweet This>
