Okay, so it's no Facebook. But Twitter is a fairly successful social media phenomenon in its own right. One that celebrates its fifth birthday this week!
In honor of this momentous occasions, we urge you to do two things:
- Follow THG on Twitter!
- Watch the awesome Funny or Die video below, which recounts the history of Twitter in Ken Burns-esque, faux-documentary fashion ...
The best line comes from Ray Wise as the professor / historian, who laments that “It’s next to impossible to piece together the early history of Twitter simply because there were not nearly enough tweets about it at the time.”
So true. There was NO way to record history pre-Twitter. Life as we know it basically began in 2006. Not coincidentally, so did THG. Think about it.
