It’s 8 years ago today that Jack Dorsey, Evan Williams, Biz Stone and Noah Glass released Twitter to the world. I’m sure there is no way they would of thought in 8 years time Twitter would be a household name, used by Millions including famous celebrities and even big news sources like BBC and CNN.
Through it’s 140 character limit, people have shared thoughts, ideas, adventures and even heartbreak. Twitter became not only a “Social Media” tool but a news outlet to many and has provided people to stay in touch and share photographs and even video around the world.
In 2006, people began to say a little something on Twitter through 140-character bursts of plain text. Eight years later, our users have transformed Twitter into place where you can discover new ideas, make real human connections and express yourself freely. So as we mark our 8th birthday, we’d like to say thank you — to you. Twitter. 2014
