Twitter, which has grown to 320 million users including a number of celebrities, has turned 10 today. To celebrate the occasion, what could have been better than tweeting a 140-character message for the users who have helped it reach to highs. The micro-blogging website on Monday wrote a thank you note for its users. Around 500 million tweets are created per day and 200 billion every year by Twitter users.
"On March 21, ten years ago, it began with a single Tweet. Since then, every moment of every day, people connect about the things they care about most - all over the world," Twitter posted.
"As we mark this milestone, it's you we want to celebrate. As March 21 begins around the world, each of our global offices will kick off the day by showing our appreciation and gratitude - starting in Sydney and following the sun to headquarters in San Francisco. We are excited to celebrate with all of you," the post further read.
Last week, Twitter CEO Dorsey had said that the 140-character limit is going to stay and it confirmed it today by tweeting a 140-character message.
"It's (140-characters) staying. It's a good constraint for us, and it allows for of-the-moment brevityA... We're changing a lot. We're always going to make Twitter better," he was quoted as saying.
"Throughout the years, you've made Twitter what it is today and you're shaping what it will be in the future. Thank you for making history, driving change, lifting each other up and laughing together every day," Twitter post stated.
