8 Successful Companies Who Changed Domain Names
Twitter is an online social networking and microblogging service that enables its users to send and read text-based messages of up to 140 characters, known as "tweets". It was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey and launched that July. Since its launch, Twitter has become one of the ten most visited websites on the Internet, and has been described as "the SMS of the Internet.”
The name "Twttr.com" was inspired by Flickr and the five-character length of American SMS short codes. A few months later in 2006, after the site took off, the co-founders shelled out $7,500 to add vowels back into the name and purchased twitter.com from an existing "bird enthusiast" website. However, twttr.com still redirects to the main site.
