As Twitter celebrates a decade in the limelight, we take a look back at some of the best tweets which shows just how much we #lovetwitter.

When you’re ten you tend to do some pretty crazy things, like eating copious amount of cake and sliding around in the mud. Y’know – kid stuff.

Not Twitter though.

For their tenth birthday they decided to pen a heartfelt love letter instead, sharing all their fondest and most talked about moments from over the years.

Pretty cool, right? Not least because it was supported by the #lovetwitter hashtag – which has now been retweeted over 72,000 times!

How Twitter changed the world

The social media giant was instrumental in changing our perspective of a symbol which was largely seen as an afterthought on telephones. Now, hashtags are the definitive way of grouping a subject matter together.

Speaking of subject matter, Twitter is changing the world 140 characters at a time.

The last 10 years has seen some of the most hilarious, controversial and downright incredible stories of all time, many of which have left an imprint on our lives.

Here’s some of our faves…

So there you have it… Twitter in a nutshell.

Sure there’s been hard times. Like when we didn’t have a clue what to do with it, or when we complained there wasn’t enough characters to write a status, but that’s what makes it so special.

Whatever your opinion is of the Twittersphere, you can’t help but argue it’s been a blast this past ten years.
