Despite the ubiquitous nature of these massive social platforms, it’s still easy to forget the role they’ve played in global events or the way they’ve shaped our digital landscape. However, 7 years on Twitter is here to remind us of all they’ve achieved in a simple video animation, Celebrating Twitter.
This video is not dissimilar to YouTube 7th birthday video which highlights the various events broadcast via the platform, and celebrates the finest of its user-generated content. This latter element is perhaps something Twitter has neglected in their Celebrating Twitter video. To my mind, there were plenty more decisive tweets from regular users that didn’t find a place in their short production that gave way to celebrity endorsements or fashionable hashtags.
What were your thoughts? Any tweets you think should have been included in Celebrating Twitter?
