Happy 5th Birthday Twitter!

5 years ago today, @jack (Jack Dorsey) sent the first tweet:

The first tweet - @jack, 21st March 2006

The Twitter blog also highlight this early tweet that saw Jack Dorsey inviting co-workers:

Inviting colleagues - @jack, 21st March 2006

Both tweets are still live here and here.

Since then Twitter has grown immeasurably, with around 140 million tweets per day now being posted - with a record of 6939 tweets per second being sent at 4 seconds after midnight in Japan on New Year's Day 2011.

Happy Birthday Twitter!
