Happy birthday Twitter: 6 today!

Today, Twitter turns 6.  Happy birthday, Twitter!

I can’t claim to have been there for  the first couple of  years of its life, but I like to think I have supported the child since it was a toddler!

With the news of its birthday, Twitter announced some new figures:

  • It has more than 140 million active users (up from 50 million a day/100 million a month a year ago)
  • There are 340 million tweets a day (up from 140 million a year ago)

That’s a lot of people saying a lot of things!

I was really interested to see the sketch Jack Dorsey made of how he thought it would look, and that he called it “stat.us” and then later “twttr”.
