San Francisco, US (BBN)-Despite the ups and downs experienced by most tech startups, this week Twitter marks its tenth year in operation.
The company is celebrating that achievement by sharing cleverly crafted thank you messages and milestone dates tracking the growth of the service, reports the Mashale.
The series of Twitter thank yous will roll out across the planet as various regions wake up to the exact anniversary date of March 21.
“As March 21st begins around the world, each of our global offices will kick off the day by showing our appreciation and gratitude,” reads the blog post announcement from Twitter posted on Sunday.
“Starting in Sydney and following the sun to headquarters in San Francisco.”
One of the company’s thank you treats is an interactive graphic (above) that shows the spread of several major Twitter events as they were retweeted around the globe.
Some of the major Twitter events covered included the re-election of President Barack Obama in 2012, Germany’s epic World Cup win in 2014, the break up of One Direction in 2015 and even the Osama bin Laden raid in 2011.
It seems like just a few years ago that the short messaging service (originally known as “twttr,” in the style of earlier Web 2.0 startups) launched as just another quirky app idea from Silicon Valley.
But that seemingly odd app idea gradually turned into the pulse of the Internet.
And while not all of the Twitter memories are sweet, many users will likely enjoy the tweet reminiscing.
