Twitter Is Old. Really Old.

Twitter is now ten (10) years old. Jack Dorsey sent the first “Twttr” a full decade ago. In internet years, that means the social media site is like … ancient. Once the “cocaine of blogging,” today Twitter is more like Diet Coke sugarless chewing gum.


“Twitter at 10: a people’s history,” Casey Newton, The Verge

“On Its 10th Birthday, a Short History of Twitter in Tweets,” Julia Greenberg, Wired

“Twitter at 10: ‘A Window Into Other Lives,'” Katie Rogers and Daniel Victor, New York Times
