Nope, it's not Twitter's anniversary nor is it Jack Dorsey's birthday.
I was in WaybackMachine earlier, trying to see how some of my favorite websites looked during their early years. I typed Twitter.com in the search box and got these results. Just thought of sharing the screenshots with you as I find them totally inspiring; This set chronicles just how much a good website can grow in a span of 6 years.
Twitter Login Page : Through The Years
Twitter was created by Jack Dorsey in March 2006. He envisioned it to be an SMS-based social network.
The site's popularity started to take off in 2007 with 400,000 tweets sent per quarter.
Verification program was launched in 2008 -- allowing 'celebrities' and companies to get a verified Twitter account.
A lot of changes in the site's interface were implemented in 2009. Some of the elements added were the search bar on the header and the trending topics sidebar.
Twitter generated $45 million in annual revenue in 2010. In the same year, the company announced an investment lead by Digital Sky Technology amounting to $800 million.
In June 2011, Twitter launched its integrated photo-sharing service allowing Tweeps to upload and attach a photo to a tweet.
To wrap this up, let me share a Twitter trivia:
The most followed Filipino on Twitter is the lovely Kapamilya star, Anne Curtis, with 1,633,729 followers as of writing.
