Celebrities on Twitter: 30 Famous First Tweets
When Twitter was born in 2006, it asked a simple question: “What are you doing?”
In November 2009, the prompt changed to “What’s happening?” The subtle difference paved the way for Twitter’s explosive growth and use as a real-time information network. The site has grown into a platform whereby people exchange links, share photos, break news and learn. No one cares if you’re eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich; we do care what article you’re reading, what products you’re playing with, and what you think about President Obama’s latest speech.
