Happy birthday Twitter

Today (July 15th) is Twitter’s 5th birthday, well its Twitter’s 5th public birthday. The site went into privet beta in March but launched publicly today, 5 years ago.

Yes Twitter is 5 years old. What milestones did they hit to celebrate? Well today Twitter hit 35 billion things shared a day. They also fell just short of 600,000 new members daily.

Could you imagen if we told you 5 years ago that Twitter, a small site launched buy a few people who work at some music podcast service called Odeo would become a multibillion dollar company that everyone knows the name of. They also have a few hundred million members. Not to impressive right?

Happy Birthday Twitter! Thanks for giving us so much to right about!
