On its 10th birthday, I paid tribute to the people who made Twitter what it is.
More than any other tech company, Twitter was invented by its users. That’s no slight against the engineers and designers who actually built the thing. It’s just to say that what we think of as Twitter — that 24/7 torrent of news and entertainment, millions of people taking measure of the global heartbeat daily — came from us. And on the service’s 10th birthday, it feels like something very much worth celebrating.
