Twttr launched today in 2006 (yes Twttr)

I login to my computer and one of the things my browser home page shows what happen today in history — Most days is just interesting stuff that requires no more than a glance…. Today’s was:

  • Rosetta Stone – was discovered on this day
  • Spanish Inquisition ended
  • US State of Georgia was readmitted int the Union
  • The famous designer, Versace died today.

And then as I go into twitter, I read something that REALLY changed the world…. (forget those other things)

On July 15, 2006, the San Francisco-based podcasting company Odeo officially releases Twttr—later changed to Twitter—its short messaging service (SMS) for groups, to the public. ( https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/twitter-launches )

It is now on my calendar… 🙂 Happy Birthday Twitter! — ( You have truly changed the world!)
