Twitter marks 9th birthday with 288m monthly active users



Imagine how time flies that today March 20th 2015 is the 9th anniversary of Twitter as it garners over 288 million monthly active users, reports ITRealms.

For the management of Twitter, “we continue to say that Twitter is what it is because of the people who use it.”

After all, they insisted that “it’s because of you that we have product features” like hashtags and best practices such as live-Tweeting. Today, these are deeply rooted elements of Twitter and part of mainstream cultural vernacular.

According to Twitter officials, “today, we look back at some of the landmark moments you’ve created – moments that define our history, and perhaps yours.”

ITRealms, gathered that starting in 2006 when co-founder Jack Dorsey made his first Tweet, when the platform was simply called “Twttr” to the population of the hashtag which helps in aggregation of similar topic or event as proposed by Chris Messina, to role escalation during the French magazine @Charlie_Hebdo campaign to name a few.

Twitter, ITRealms recalls has become a global platform for public self-expression and conversation in real time. 

By developing a fundamentally new way for people to consume, create, distribute and discover content, Twitter enables any voice to echo around the world instantly and unfiltered. The service can be accessed at Twitter.com, via Twitter mobile applications for a variety of devices, and by text message. 

“Available in more than 35 languages, Twitter has over 288 million monthly active users,” official revealed.
