Say Happy Birthday to Twitter. It has been six years since the first tweet, “just setting up my twttr” was relayed. University of Florida Social Media Specialist Bruce Floyd says because of its growth, Twitter is a key resource for companies to have to make them successful.
He says because of the simplicity of the Twitter platform, it has been able to reach more than 350-million people.
I sort of think the fact that we worship at the alter of youth as a culture is wrong and kind of sort of denies us some of the pleasures and good qualities about growing older and I try to celebrate them. So that’s really my message. It’s sort of just, not to listen to the people who tell you to act your age because what does that actually mean?
