Twitter celebrates 5th Birthday


To celebrate its fifth birthday, Twitter has launched a new website and a video featuring some of its most prominent users.

Five years ago, co-founder Jack Dorsey sent the very first tweet over Twitter’s servers. Today, the social media website has hundreds of millions of users and a valuation nearing $10 billion.

Along with the launch of the new website, Discover Twitter, the company has also unveiled a new YouTube video in which the 16 featured tweeters discuss who they follow and what value Twitter brings their lives.

The list includes tennis star Serena Williams, Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, rapper Snoop Dogg, U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner and astronaut Paolo Nespoli, among other recognizable celebrities and institutions.

With interviews featuring everyone from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to UFC President Dana White, the video will top YouTube’s Top 10.
