A Look Back on Twitter

I randomly got curious this week and here is what I learned:

I was the 6,798,762nd person to join Twitter. (There are currently over 1.8 billion Twitter accounts.) 

The first tweet was sent by co-founder Jack Dorsey on March 21, 2006. He was followed by 31 people who were likely friends and colleagues. Today he has 2.4 million followers.

Originally, it wasn't spelled out, you see. It was just "Twttr."

Here's a cool article  from back in the early days of Twitter if you're curious - written by co-founder  Evan Williams . Originally, Twitter was a project from the Obvious Corp., founded by Dorsey, Williams and  Biz Stone . I think. I actually didn't Google that - I could be talking out of my ass but I'm going to publish as is and hope I'm right. Live on the edge.

I have been on Twitter for over 83% of its existence, for longer than 99.9% of its other users.

I joined and tweeted for the first time on June 13, 2007. This is actually rather special to me because on June 13, 1992, I was Bat Mitzvah'd. On June 13, 1997 I graduated high school. And it was my Grandfather's birthday. June 13 is one of my favorite days. 

This site is kinda cool (if not a little stalkery) -- get your own Twitter history here .

P.S. I think Jack Dorsey is kinda cute. Frankly, if for no other reason than he founded Twitter, Sqaure and is kind of a genius and is even a little douchey -- I think he's sexy. ;)
