In the beginning, to believe in free expression and think every voice has the power to impact the world, Twitter came to the market on March 21, 2006.

However, in a year it encountered the social networking giant Facebook turn a profit for only the first time. In effect, it was not clear whether Twitter could achieve financial independence from its venture capital investors. Gradually, in April 2010 Twitter unveiled “Promoted Tweets” advertisements that would appear in search results. With this in mind to make it a primary revenue source.

Consequently, in the fiscal year 2019, Twitter generated $1.5 billion of net income, up about 25% from $1.2 billion in 2018.3 Revenue rose to $3.5 billion in 2019 from $3.0 billion the year prior.4

Twitter: It’s What’s Happening

Be that as it may, perhaps the most noteworthy step in the evolution of Twitter was the increased use as a tool for amateur journalists. Besides, Twitter transformed from something that was regarded as an idle hobby for an increasingly wired world into an up-to-the-second news source. Not to mention, it transcended political borders.

On January 15, 2009, a tweet by commuter ferry passenger Janis Krums broke the story of the successful water landing of US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River in New York City. Furthermore, a hastily snapped camera phone image of passengers disembarking the half-submerged aircraft was uploaded to Twitpic.com. In other words, a photo-hosting service for Twitter users; the site promptly crashed as thousands of users attempted to view it at once.

Even though there are other sources of data, Facebook has more information on you and what you’re interested in than any other source in history. On the other hand, Linkedin has the biggest database of professional knowledge ever created. However, nothing beats Twitter’s capacity to deliver real-time, up to the minute info on what’s happening, right now.

Therefore, view Twitter as an up-to-the-moment track of everything that’s happening. Whatever you want to know, wherever that maybe, you can find it here. Considered from that perspective, the value of the platform takes on new importance.

After all, it’s an information-technology based world.
