Twitter Turns Eight!

On March 21, 2006 Twitter was born. With novel concepts of thoughts being formed with 140 characters and categorizing these thoughts with a number sign, Twitter impacted how we use social media today. With Twitter’s eighth birthday under its belt and about $31 billion dollars, we can all agree their success hasn’t gone unnoticed. Twitter released a tool that let users look back to their very first tweets, as well as the first Tweets heard around the word. The first ever tweet was on opening day via co-founder Jack Dorsey. Other memorable moments included Ashton Kutcher hitting one million followers in a race with CNN,  President Obama’s Tweet in 2007 and a Tweet from space!
