#HappyBirthday Twitter!

Hard to believe Twitter is turning just six years old today. It seems like it’s been around forever.

The tributes and retrospectives are popping up all across the Internet.

You could argue Jack Dorsey‘s first tweet is the 21st century’s “Mr. Watson — come here”, the birth of a communication revolution.

How did we ever follow news and, more importantly, celebrities before Twitter?

It’s also given consumers of news a fascinating look, in real time, as to how the sausage is made.

Six years is forever in the tech world, which makes you wonder: What’ll be the next big thing in social media? What is the next Twitter?

I don’t know, but this 140-characters-or-less limit is pretty constricting.
