We bet you’re missing an important milestone that passes each year – your twitter birthday or Twbirthday, as it’s referred to by those “in the know.”
And yes, it’s something to celebrate. You deserve nice things.
Twitter celebrates it’s fifth birthday today. Jack Dorsey’s first-ever tweet was sent on March 21, 2006, back when the site was known as Twttr.
Five years is quite a milestone for the platform, which now sees almost half a million new accounts registered each and every day, a billion tweets a week, and boasts 400 employees.
Yesterday, Dorsey reminisced about those pre-Twitter days.
Roll on birthday number six.
Twitter turns four today. Co-founder Jack Dorsey made the first tweet on March 21, 2006, at 8.50pm (PST).
Note the status number at the end of the URL of that tweet – twenty. Status numbers tell us the actual number of the post on the system. Wonder what happened to tweets one through nineteen? Maybe the content was so racy and damaging that they were quickly pulled before Twitter went live?
(Or, perhaps more likely, they were used for testing purposes.)
Happy birthday Twitter!
