How Twitter Got Started

How Twitter Got Started

Twitter is an unusual no-longer-startup that made an impact, signed up users, but is still not profitable. Why would a company with 300 Mn users not be able to make enough money to continue on its own?


The answer might lie in the complicated history of how Twitter started — the many times it changed its CEO and tried to define what it was. In this infographic, I trace the history of Twitter from before it started, with Jack Dorsey, one of its co-founders and, perhaps, the only visionary.

Most facts in this infographic came from this article in The New Yorker.
