As we learned from Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey on a his recent 60 Minutes interview, even he didn’t think Twitter would grow to what it is today. Twitter’s reach is massive by connecting people all over the world.
It (only) took Twitter seven years to amass 200 million active users firing off 400 million tweets per day. Today is Twitter’s 7th birthday.
Seven years ago today the first tweet appeared. Back then, Twitter was a private social networking website. Dorsey is credited with the first-ever tweet proclaiming “just setting up my twttr”. That was March 21, 2006. Since that day, or really since Twitter’s official public launch on July 15, Twitter has exploded, changing the way we interact with people on the Internet and get short bursts of information.
The company launched this neat video as a look back at historical events, fun times and humble beginnings for the platform. We send you at H/T, Twitter. We at TweetBrander enjoy writing about the platform, the updates and tools that are released and the story of people coming today from all over the world.
