NEW YORK: The micro-blogging site Twitter on Monday celebrates its 10th anniversary, kicking off worldwide birthday celebrations.
Twitter started as a bare-bones microblogging site on March 21, 2006, and since then, the company has been growing through ideas devised by its own audience.
With 320 million users including celebrities such as Harry Styles, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber on its platform, the micro-blogging site Twitter has also proved itself as an excellent platform to raise awareness about political topics, spread political messages and coordinate collective action.
Celebrating its 10th birthday, Twitter posted a message to its users. Let’s explore what it says:
“On March 21, ten years ago, it began with a single Tweet. Since then, every moment of every day, people connect about the things they care about most – all over the world,” Twitter posted.
“As we mark this milestone, it’s you we want to celebrate. As March 21 begins around the world, each of our global offices will kick off the day by showing our appreciation and gratitude – starting in Sydney and following the sun to headquarters in San Francisco. We are excited to celebrate with all of you,” the post further read.
