Happy Birthday Twitter!

Today is the fifth anniversary of one of the most popular and controversial creations of social media, Twitter. Five years ago, co-founder Jack Dorsey sent out the first tweet ,” just setting up my twttr,” and since then over 200 million people have sent out over 30 billion 140 character-or-less tweets. Twitter has helped (or hurt, depending on how you look at it) people communicate, network and spread information instantly. Click the image to enlarge.

I personally think, that when used the right way, Twitter is easily one of the most important creations of this new century. And with a value of over $10 Billion, I’m not the only one. Do you think Twitter will still be relevant in 5 years?
