What Twitter Looked Like When It Was Born (Screenshot, History)

Twitter, then known as twttr, was born just over 5 years ago – but in Twitter-time that’s ancient history. What did it look like when it launched? I’d never seen a screenshot of the original Twttr home page until old school megablogger Jason Kottke posted one tonight, along with links to a few other oldies.

As you can see below, Twitter didn’t have a hard time explaining itself at first. “If you have a cell and you can txt,” the home page said, “you’ll never be bored again…E V E R!” I guess when you’ve raised mountain upon mountain of venture capital and changed the world in multiple major ways, you’ve got to take yourself more seriously than that. (?) None the less, I like this old version of Twitter!
