Twitter Co-Founder Jack Dorsey Sent Out The World's First Tweet 5 Years Ago

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey
sent out the world's first Tweet,
five years ago in 2006 on March
21st. It read: "just setting up
my twttr." Today, it's used to
archive lives, cultures and
breaking news in real-time.

Dorsey set-in-motion the idea
for Twitter while working with
Biz Stone and Evan Williams at
the podcasting company Odeo.

"As much fun as we were having,
there was always, I think, in
the back of our heads the idea
of the potential of something
important coming from it," Stone
shared feelings from the start-
up's early days.

It was laughed at by some as a
platform for telling the world
what one had for lunch or when
one cleaned house, but Twitter
has become respected as an one-stop
during disasters like the
earthquake in Japan.

Twitter was an invaluable for
information collection and
communication the moment cell-phone
service became available in Japan,
for example.

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
