Whether you like it or not, social media, particularly Twitter, is a big part of our lives. I remember finding out the news of Michael Jackson’s death while I was browsing Twitter. This month Twitter celebrates 10 years of tweets, retweets & hashtags. Furthermore they have accompanied the milestone with a special emoji hashtag “#LoveTwitter”.

10 years on from its conception, Twitter has become a huge part of everyday life. It is now a place we send/receive news, talk to family/friends and communicate with our favourite brands, celebrities and influencers. It only seems fitting to run through the top tweets of all time!

The most iconic tweet of all time, has to be the first one ever created.

The most popular tweet has to be of THAT Oscars photo, with over 3 million RTs.

Twitter becomes a form of broadcasting live. News, as it happens.

We’ve even tweeted from outer space!

Caitlyn Jenner’s account becomes the fastest to reach 1 million followers.

The most used hashtag in 24 hours goes to #ALDubEBTamangPanahon – for a TV show in the Philippines, Eat Bulaga – with over 40 million tweets.

There’s even been marriage proposals!

The 2014 World Cup becomes the most tweeted about sports event, with over 672 million tweets.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s long awaited Oscar win sparked a Tweet spike of a record breaking 440,000 Tweets per minute.

It is clear that Twitter isn’t going anywhere fast, no matter what the critics say. Even Justin Bieber sent a tweet, accompanied with a video of himself singing Happy Birthday to the company.

Twitter also sent out a tweet from their account featuring a video highlighting the most prominent moments of the social media platform over the past 10 years – showing how we promote change, support fellow users, make history and laughing with each other every day. Here’s to the next 10 years with our beloved Twitter.
