200 million active users now create over 400 million Tweets each day - something @jack, @ev and @biz only dreamed about back in 2006. Karen Wickre (@kvox), Twitter's editorial director, blogs to the entire Twittersphere: "Thank you for making Twitter everything it is today."
Wickre puts it very succinctly in her blog:
"As we’ve grown, Twitter has become a true global town square — a public place to hear the latest news, exchange ideas and connect with people all in real time. This is where you come to connect with the world at large. Get on your soapbox to critique elected officials, or go sotto voce to the neighbor next to you. And as in other gathering places, commerce happens too (and jokes and art-making and debating, and — you get the idea)."
Twitter's birthday is celebrated on March 21st of each year, the date of Jack Dorsey's first tweet.
"Since then," Wickre writes, " we’ve seen breathtaking velocity in Twitter’s growth, which is due entirely to your many uses of it. We’re gratified that so many millions of you have made Twitter yours."
She ends her birthday blog with a shout-out to the entire Twittersphere:
"Here’s to your creativity, curiosity and experimentation on our platform. And again, thank you for making Twitter everything it is today."
Happy 7th birthday, Twitter.
