How 140 characters has defined our world

Twitter

It’s one of the top 10 most visited sites in the world. It is both the subject of addiction and ridicule with opponents and avid users often going at each other in person or on other social networks. It is huge in the United States, but it’s also very popular in countries such as Brazil, Japan, Mexico, and Russia.

For better or for worse, Twitter has become a huge part of our daily lives whether we use it as individuals or not. Political campaigns are judged by it. News is spread through it. Malware is shared, embarrassing images can go viral, and the minute details of many people’s lives can be found through its catalog of 140-character snippets.

This infographic breaks down the Twitter world and the tremendous 6-year journey the site has taken. Click to enlarge.
