Today Twitter celebrates 10 years of providing drama, comedy, romance, excitement and a whole host of other emotions in 140 characters or less.
The microblogging service feels as if it has been around for a lot longer, however, having played significant roles in major world events from the London riots and a decade of Superbowls(!) through to the Arab Spring. It’s also been a steadfast provider of news and gossip and the breaking point for many scandals (and much comedy!)
For businesses and brands, it’s become a key part of marketing strategy; in fact, it’s been a key driver in the development of digital marketing, as a concept, along with the likes of Facebook. For individuals, it can be inspirational, thought-provoking and just plain fun!
Twitter – for ten years of bringing people together, we salute you! Happy birthday!
