The social network Twitter turned 10 years old on Monday, 21st of March 2016. On the same day in 2006, one of it's early founding members, Jack Dorsey (now current CEO), sent out the first tweet. 

A lot has happened on Twitter, and to the communications in industry as a whole in the past 10 years. Twitter is an important channel for new media, and it has been widely adopted both in Dubai and the Middle East.
