10 Years on Twitter

Jan 6, 2019 | Social Media

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.
