Happy Birthday! Twitter!

5 years ago today, a person by the name of http://twitter.com/jack” target=”_blank”>Jack Dorsey wrote a somewhat cryptic message “http://twitter.com/jack/status/29″ target=”_blank”>inviting co-workers“. Demonstrated from the recent disaster in Japan, the ongoing revolutions taking place in the Middle East, to the nescient ramblings from actor Charlie Sheen, the inter-connectivity of our modern world became more apparent this day 5 years ago with those words “inviting co-workers”. You see, Jack Dorsey is a software designer, but not just any geek with penchant for coding, Jack Dorsey is the Creator of http://twitter.com” target=”_blank”>Twitter and 5 years ago today, he posted the first Twitter message, “inviting co-workers”. The idea of Twitter really came to fruition on May 31st, 2000 when Dorsey signed up to social media platform http://livejournal.com” target=”_blank”>LiveJournal. But wanting an even quicker update, like that of an Instant Messaging made for public, Dorsey started to tweak his idea. After 6 years of retuning and refining his little side project, Dorsey approached Biz Stone and Evan Williams, executives at the now-defunct firm Odeo. Work started on March 13th, 2006. 8 days later, Dorsey published the http://twitter.com/jack/status/29″ target=”_blank”>first Twitter message and the rest as they said is history.via: http://wired.com/thisdayintech/2011/03/0321twitter-first-tweet/” target=”_blank”>WIRED
