10 Years on Twitter
So I received a notification from Twitter this morning, that’s nothing unusual, except that this one said “It’s your Twitter anniversary…“
What?! Apparently it’s ten years since I signed up to Twitter. If you’d asked me yesterday, I would have said that the social media giant wasn’t even around ten years ago. Some research this morning has enlightened me, Twitter was launched in July 2006. I signed up two and a half years later.
As a relatively early adopter, I was able to secure my real name as my Twitter handle @SimonYeo. Good luck to anyone trying to get their real name as a username today!
I’m only an occasional user of Twitter these days. Below are some of my earliest tweets from 2009.
