Unless you’ve been living under a rock this past year, chances are you have either tweeted or seen a tweet on today’s fastest growing social media website. The 140 character text based posts have spread like a wild fire throughout the world since 2006 with users tweeting about their current location, breaking news and even marriage proposals. Celebrities and business owners alike have embraced it as a popular marketing tool by allowing fans and clients to follow them. Twitter has grown so large, with an average of 55 million tweets a day, that on April 14th it’s co-founder Biz Stone announced that it will be donating its entire archive of public tweets to the Library of Congress. Urban Geko, your California graphic design firm, would like to share some famous tweets with you:
