The First Tweet Ever

@jack

Twitter was invented in 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams. There was no app for it when it was invented so to use it you would text twitter and it would post on your account. These are called tweets.

Twitter later developed into an app and a website where you have your own profile and can follow other people on twitter to see their content and they can follow you back. Tweets are about current things happening at themoment and are often posted while compared to Facebook they are more like updates and used by an older crowd. Twitter users are typically between theages of 15-25.

Twitter fame

@carterjwm                     @TheEllenShow

In 2014 Ellen Degeneres tweet a picture with famous actors at the oscars and it got the most retweets ever at 3.4 million. 3 years later in 2017 a kid named Carter tweeted at Wendy's for free nuggets and that beat Ellen's tweet at 3.45 million retweets.

After Carter's tweet got famous he gained a lot of followers and became Twitter verified. Being twitter verified is when you have a blue check next to your name, famous people and companies have them. If you aren't famous but have a lot of followers you can apply to become twitter verified. This just says you are you and you are the real deal and other fake accounts aren't you.

twitter isn't for everybody

Some people don't understand the concept of twitter. For example our President Donald Trump, he is constantly tweeting things he shouldn't be tweeting as a President. He often tweets about "fake news" or bashes Hillary Clinton. When he should be tweeting about current events.
