Look at what the numbers off the Twitter Blog Say.

Five years ago this week, a small team of people started working on a prototype of the service that we now know as Twitter. On March 21, 2006, Jack Dorsey (@jack) sent the first Tweet.

 

Today, on every measure of growth and engagement, Twitter is growing at a record pace. Here are some numbers:

What is Twitter?

Twitter is an online social networking tool in which users post 140 character updates of what is going on in their lives along with links to things they think are interesting, funny, or useful to their followers (“following” being essentially what “friending” is on other sites). People use twitter in many ways, some as a newsfeed by following prominent people or networks, some as a pseudo-chatroom by limiting their followers and whom they follow to close friends and family, and some as a microblog for updating people about the work they are doing and their personal lives. -Mom This is how Twitter Works

What is a Tweet?

A Tweet is an expression of a moment or idea. It can contain text, photos, and videos. Millions of Tweets are shared in real time, every day.

The best Tweets share meaningful moments — big and small. Quote your grandma, share a photo of your pet sloth, or make a Vine video of your youngest doing a tricycle wheelie. If you think it’s interesting, chances are your followers will, too.

Where do Tweets live?

When you follow people, their Tweets instantly show up in your timeline. Similarly, your Tweets show up in your followers’ timelines. To see interesting Tweets, follow interesting people: friends, celebrities, news sources, or anyone whose Tweets you enjoy.  -Twitter
