“When was the launch of Twitter?

- July 15, 2006! "

Everyone knows Twitter, the application that sends Tweets up to 280 characters long over the Internet by instant messaging. But do you know how it got started?

Twitter was created on March 21, 2006 by 4 men, Jack Dorsey, Evan Williams, Biz Stone and Noah Glass. The basic idea was that users easily share their little moments in life with their friends. After working a few months, they launched the application on July 15, 2006 and the first tweet was sent by Mr. Dorsey: "Just setting up my twttr" which means: "I am installing my twttr".

This social network is based on tweet and retweet which allows a lively exchange between several interlocutors. Anyone can participate in any conversation, that's the strength of Twitter. This social network is also the subject of political messages; Donald Trump is the most concrete example. He tweets and retweets regularly to express his thoughts.
