Just three years ago today, Twitter co-founder CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted the first Tweet ever. Not quite as memorable or moving as Neil Armstrong’s “One Small Step…” but monumental all the same.

The idea dates back to 2000, when Jack Dorsey was co-founder of another startup namedOdeo (acquired by Sonic Mountain). One day Dorsey signed up to Livejournal, which became an inspiration for a side project called Twitter.

The initial idea of Jack Dorsey that resulted in the development of Twitter is available on Flickr but I’ve reposted it below for you to read.
