There seems to be quite a bit of confusion over Twitter’s big day. If you recall, we celebrated their birthday twice last year. Once in March and again in July. In an effort to clear things up, we did a bit of research and found that today is in fact NOT Twitter’s Birthday. In reality today is actually the anniversary of the first tweet, which was made by founder @Jack Dorsey 7 years ago today. It wasn’t until July, 2006 that Twitter was launched to the public (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twitter)
No matter what we consider today for Twitter, there’s no doubt that they have accomplished quite a bit in the past 7 or so years. They’re now boasting over 200 million active users who are churning out 400+ millions tweets per day. In the video, you’ll see a quick glimpse of Twitter over the years.
