Happy Fifth Birthday Twitter

Happy #5yrs Twitter!

While the brains behind Twitter have been celebrating all week, it was five years ago today that Twitter cofounder Jack Dorsey sent the first tweet ever:

In honor of Twitter's big birthday, Twitter asked users to post their favorite tweets of all time, with the hashtag #5yrs. With users around the world now sending 140 million tweets per day, Twitter's success is clear. Amidst the billions of tweets, there are plenty that stand out, giving us a look into history and at the vast power Twitter has to mobilize and give its users a platform and a voice.

Twitter has played a role in almost every major event in recent years, from the US presidential election to recent Egyptian protests. Twitter has even broken free from the confines of our atmosphere, allowing astronauts to tweet from space. With noted celebs and everyday people alike using the service to speak out, Twitter has come a long way in the past five years — here's to more sweet success!
