Happy Birthday, Twitter!

There sure has been a whole lotta tweetin’ goin’ on in the last few years, and today marks the completion of the fifth cycle around the Sun sine the first tweet done been twut.

As of now, every eight days, one billion tweets are siphoned through the internet’s tubes – and here I remember a time when we at Techi would remark wide-eyed on a tweet milestone of a couple billion. I guess we’ll just report on the trillions from here on out.

In order to get everyone all bleary-eyed about the 140-character messages that touch them most, Twitter has provided a video of people of all walks of life – especially the walk of life where you’re famous and have millions of dollars – explaining why they love Twitter, and who they follow. Apparently, Snoop Dogg follows Martha Stewart. Who knew.

So I guess the big question is, on this 1826th day of Twitter’s existence, what does Twitter mean to you? How has it enriched your life? Has it at all?
