Weekly DigiKnow: Happy Birthday, Twitter

March 22

Earlier this week Twitter celebrated its 6th anniversary of the first ever tweet, sent by co-founder Jack Dorsey. Since that time it has grown to permeate our social landscape, often the first platform to report breaking news from around the globe and the reason your high school reunion now has a hashtag.

As of last month, Twitter had over 532 million registered users and was ranked 9th worldwide by Alexia (8th in the U.S.). Beyond news, sports, television, politics, and entertainment, Twitter has also found a place in recruitment. From establishing a handle for your career opportunities to sponsored tweets and accounts, an increasing number of organizations are finding success in reaching their target audience.
