The Illustrated History of Twitter

Twitter, one of the biggest and most successful social media and microblogging sites in the universe has recently celebrated its birthday. Conceptualized after a brainstorming session by Evan Williams, Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass and Biz Stone, and launched on March 21, 2006, Twitter has rapidly grown to over 645 million registered users. Statistics shows that 58 million are sent on average every day, and this does not even include the 135,000 new members signing up every day. Who would have thought that the small vision would actually grow this big? In 2013, Twitter filed papers at the US Securities and Exchange Commission and enlisted an Initial Public Offering at the New York Stocks Exchange. Today, it is valued with a market capitalization of about $32 billion.
