Twitter is arguably one of the most utilised microblogging platforms of our time. Launched by Jack Dorsey in 2006, the social network celebrates its 7th anniversary on 21 March 2013.

Initially known as Twttr, Twitter is a social network which has become ubiquitous in this generation’s popular culture. This platform’s major advantage is that it is a primary source of information seeing as anyone can post short messages about what is happening in their life and in their country

Seven years now since Jack Dorsey has posted his first tweet on the social platform now known as Twitter. Since then, the platform has fuelled a wide range of events. These events include uprisings such as the Arab Spring and the Occupy movement, and also political campaigns. As Twitter CEO Dick Costolo so bluntly puts it, Jack Dorsey’s social network is “the free speech wing of the free speech party". Jack Dorsey’s platform has, in its own way, become a way to circumvent media censorship.


The very first tweet posted by Dorsey seven years ago

However, this has raised certain issues. An example is the French Court’s order to block increasing anti-Semitic tweets. "We have to abide by the laws in the country's in which we operate," says Costolo. In Europe, there are laws against hate speech, unlike in the United States. These hateful tweets are therefore not visible in France only but the French tweeters will be informed that these posts are being censored.

Jack Dorsey’s social platform is of great use in many respects. It not only encourages fan culture (Tweeters can “follow” their favorite celebrities), but it plays a major role in transparent communication. This is one of Twitter’s primary missions and is definitely worth remembering on its seventh anniversary! #HappyBirthdayTwitter
