Ten years ago today, Twitter was just in it’s beginning stages and now it’s one of the biggest social networks out there.
As of May 2015, Twitter has more than 500 million users and 332 million of those, are active.
Twitter was started in March 2006 but it didn’t officially launch until July 2006. Jack Dorsey, one of the co-founders of Twitter along with Noah Glass, Biz Stone and Evan Williams.
Jack Dorsey was the one that published the first Twitter message.
It seems like just yesterday, that I was joining Twitter and that was almost 6 years ago (I joined in September 2010).
To help celebrate, Twitter had Chris Hardwick chat with Jack Dorsey, Biz Stone and Ev Williams, live on Periscope.
So happy birthday Twitter, here’s to many more years of Twitter to come.
You can tweet your own thoughts on what you love about Twitter with the hashtag, #LoveTwitter.
Also, for today only, if you favourite a tweet, you’ll see some confetti with the heart animation.
