Your very own micro-blogging giant Twitter today celebrating its seventh birthday and in order to treat itself it has been given a gift of 200 million users and counting. Twitter is now having more than 200 million active users which create over 400 million Tweets each day. To celebrate the moment with all, the company made a video celebrating some of the many moments it has passed through so far.
Here is what Twitter has to say about it:
As we’ve grown, Twitter has become a true global town square — a public place to hear the latest news, exchange ideas and connect with people all in real time. This is where you come to connect with the world at large. Get on your soapbox to critique elected officials, or go sotto voce to the neighbor next to you. And as in other gathering places, commerce happens too (and jokes and art-making and debating, and — you get the idea).
This global town square even extends into space: an astronaut like Commander Chris Hadfield can express himself — and so can Captain Kirk.
