In a blog post yesterday evening, Twitter revealed: “As March 21 begins around the world, each of our global offices will kick off the day by showing our appreciation and gratitude”. The site enthusiastically added that its users have “made Twitter what it is today and [are] shaping what it will be in the future.”
Starting in 🇦🇺 on 3/21 and moving across the 🌍, we thank you for 10 incredible years.

If you have a Twitter account, you might have already noticed a Twitter-sent ‘thank you’ email in your inbox and publicizing the hashtag #lovetwitter, which you could use to mark the special anniversary. Twitter has even been celebrating with balloons – as you can see for yourself by heading over to Twitter’s own account on its long-running microblogging site.
