Ten years ago, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey sent the first ever tweet.

Since then, Twitter has gained over 300 million active users and become strongly associated with cultural movements and major news events – from the Arab Spring, Black Lives Matter, the Paris attacks and Barack Obama’s presidency.
