New blog post: Happy Birthday Twitter!!! #twttr #5yrs
Today marks Twitter’s 5th Birthday. (It’s still 21 March in US). Happy Birthday Twitter!!! Twitter’s first tweet was sent by Jack Dorsey , creator, co-founder and chairman of Twitter on 21 March 2006, 1:50pm PDT. (22 March, 4:50am Singapore time) Twitter is called Twttr in the early days. Aren’t you glad it is now call Twitter? Twitter said that it is now sending out 140 million tweets a day, or a billion tweets every eight days. There are close to 500,000 users sign up each day. By comparison, it took a year and a half for Twitter to get its first 500,000 users. Wow. Happy Birthday Twitter! Thank you for the great service. And thank you for changing the world with 140 characters.
