At only 6 years of age, Twitter has more than 140 Million Active Users! Twitter users send 340 million tweets a day; that’s more than 1 billion every 3 days. On March 21, 2006, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey posted the very first public tweet, “Just setting up my twttr,” he wrote.
Twitter posted this on their birthday; “Without you, of course, there wouldn’t be a Twitter”. “We mark our sixth birthday with you in mind, and celebrate your myriad ways of engaging, enjoying, and emoting on our platform.”
Twitter announced in September of 2011 that it had reached 100 million active users. At that time, Twitter users included 75 percent of the NBA’s players, 50 percent of the NFL, 82 percent of the U.S. House and 85 percent of the Senate, 87 percent of the Billboard Top 100 Musicians, and 93 percent of the top Food Network chefs. Whoa! That’s a lot. If you’re not on Twitter, you’re missing out and out of the loop.
