Since then, the social networking site has been a major breaking news platform for instant updates on latest happenings around the world. Twitter has also been the torchbearer for unique and inspiring social activist movements like #JeSuisParis, #BlackLivesMatter and #BringBackOurGirls.
To commemorate the special occasion, Twitter has created a two-and-a-half minute ad to thank its users. The video focusses on everything that has made Twitter unique over the years. The entire “thank you” message is squeezed within the 140-character limit to make the birthday more special.
Starting in ?? on 3/21 and moving across the ?, we thank you for 10 incredible years.
