How Tweet It Is: Twitter Turns Seven

Share this post

Here in northwest Indiana, a statue has its own Twitter account... that would be the bronze likeness of Orville Redenbacher at downtown Valparaiso's Central Park. And that's not that unusual for the social-media-revolutionizing machine. Twitter turns seven years old today (Thursday). On March 21, 2006, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey sent the first social-media tweet, typing "just setting up my twttr". He spelled it T-W-T-T-R and used only 24 of the allowed 140 characters. Fast-forward to today, the company's Elaine Filadelfo says 200 million users tweet 400 million times a day and just over every two days there are a billion tweets sent.
