What’s your first memory of Twitter?
For me, it was somewhat enthusiastically signing up for my @Sheamus profile on March 8, 2008, sending my first tweet… and not sending my second until more than three weeks later.
Twitter is different things to different people, but in the wake of its upcoming IPO it’s easy to forget that it has existed as a thing for less than a decade. Indeed, Twitter’s progression from simple concept in March 2006 to media and communications powerhouse in September 2013 is nothing short of amazing… and the best could still be yet to come.
This infographic from the Wall Street Journal takes a quick look at some key moments from Twitter’s history, circa 2006-13.
