Hey in this video I want to share twitter search history and cool stuff I learned about it.
Twitter was launched in October 2006, from an ex Google employee, so you know he is smart. Originally he was going to create a podcasting platform, where if you called a phone number it would turn your message into an mp3 hosted on the Internet.
but guess what happened?
Yea, apple came out with I tunes and he became irrelevant. So instead of getting all depressed a guy named Jack Dorsey proposed an instant messaging idea to Evan Williams.
During the creation of twitter team members would often rack up hundreds of dollars in instant messaging charges on phone bills.
This reminds me of great quote “turn your problems into money making opportunities.”
In the early days twitter first got viral by a conference called South By Southwest Interactive Conference saw a huge explosion of twitter usage.
It was seen as the happening place, I’m talking about twitter. More than 60 thousand tweets were sent per day at the event. The twitter team had a huge presence at the event and took advantage of the viral nature of the conference and the attendees.
As more and more people started to use twitter the usage would be over capacity. The were not prepared for the huge growth.
When this took place an illustration appeared on the screen featuring a whale being lifted out of the water by 8 birds to safety.
The twitter team used this image because they thought it symbolized the acknowledgment of the problem and they were working on it. It was soon known as the “Fail Whale.”
I the early days tweets could only be 140 characters. In 2017 twitter decided that the 140 character limit was no longer relevant due to smartphones and it increased it to 280 characters.
The cool thing is how hashtags and retweets were created because they didn’t initially have it. In the old days some users would include an @ symbol before another users name. The twitter team added it a long with hashtages, so people can identify a topic to comment on.
Then retweets were created in 2010.
Twitter today is worth over 10 billion dollars.
This is a controversial topic, but you could say Twitter helped Donald Trump win the white house. Many traditional media companies do somewhat lean the other direction, apart from Fox News. What social media gave to Trump was a platform where he could bypass traditional media, that mostly wanted him to lose and go directly to the people.
Do you know what the danger of twitter is? Yea, once you put that tweet out there it’s very hard to take back and you have seen a lot of good with twitter and you might be able to make the case that it has destroyed some people’s lives.
One person was a public relation executive who tweeted “going to Africa, hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding. I’m white!”
That tweet made her get fired. .
Also with how people can be so negative, if you tweet something really stupid everyone shares that thing.
1 example of a dumb tweet is. “If Donald Trump wins the presidency, I’m leaving America and moving to Alaska.”
