What is Twitter?

Twitter is a popular social networking service allowing users to post, share, and interact with other users’ posts which are also known as tweets. Currently, it is one of the most popular microblogging services worldwide with more than 300 million active users. The company, headquartered in San Francisco, has more than 5,500 employees. Twitter is also known for its subsidiaries, including Vine, Periscope, and MoPub.

Twitter’s story began when Jack Dorsey, an undergraduate student at New York University, came up with the idea of using SMS to communicate with a small group. The project was initially named twttr according to the five-character length of SMS short codes. Siz months after the launch, the team could purchase twitter.com domain, which was unavailable before, and decided to change the name to Twitter.

Twitter was created by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams in 2006. The team managed to release the service a few months after they have started working on the project. The first Twitter post was published by Jack Dorsey on March 21, during the development of the service saying: “just setting up my twttr”. During the following years, Twitter experienced fast growth. While users were posting 100 million tweets per quarter in 2008, this number grew to 50 million tweets per day in 2010. Twitter also introduced various new features such as trending topics, polls, third-party application support, verified accounts, integrated photo and video sharing service, and streaming video. In 2021, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey stepped down as CEO position and the company announced the appointment of Parag Agrawal as the new CEO.
