Not Bad for 5 Years Old….

Yesterday, Twitter celebrated its 5th birthday. On March 21st, 2006, founder Jack Dorsey sent his first “tweet”, beginning a revolution that would eventually change the way many of us communicate (I’m not among them, yet).

Since that time, some staggering statistics have been amassed.

Here are just a few:

  • Users send over 1 Billion tweets PER WEEK (the first Billion took over 3 years).
  • Over 460,000 accounts were added PER DAY last month
  • As of last month, Twitter is valued at somewhere between $8 Billion and $10 Billion on sales of (only) $110 Million

All in all, I’d say that’s not too shabby for the first 5 years in existence.

You may not have the next Twitter in mind, but somewhere, on a folded up bar napkin or the dark recesses of your brain, is an idea that (if you just had the guts to go for it) would change your life forever.
