Happy Birthday Twitter!

It’s been exactly six years since the first ever Tweet on the 21st of March 2006. Twitter set out with the goal of becoming the SMS of the internet and have come a long way to reach the colossal 500 million users of today.

If you’ve been living under some form of rock Twitter is a social network/micro blogging service that allows its users to send and receive text based posts up to 140 characters. Frequently used by celebrities, sports people and political figures Twitter has long since established itself in our daily lives.

No one’s certain when it comes to the future of Twitter. The chances are they’ll go public like Facebook and make a lot of people rich considering the company was valued at 8.4 billion in December 2011. But until this day comes, happy tweeting.
