  • Twitter is celebrating its 10th birthday today, which in our eyes is the perfect reason to get excited about the best kind of holiday if you happen to be 10 years old too…

    Twitter is getting old. Official. Today marks the social media giant’s 10th birthday, and if you’ve logged in today (while your boss was making a cuppa, obvs), you’ll have seen that everyone is sending some virtual lovin’ to that little blue bird. In fact, more than 800,000 tweets have already been posted with the #lovetwitter hashtag, making it the top trend across the world.

    In its first decade, Twitter has broken some incredible records – not least with the famed Oscar selfie which notched up 2.6 million retweets in a matter of hours. It’s all a far cry from the first ever tweet, posted by founder Jack Dorsey on this very day back in 2006, when he wrote: “just setting up my twttr.” Inspired, huh?

    In keeping with today’s anniversary, we’ve picked out the best holidays to take if you happen to be 10, just like old tweety himself. And in the interests of brevity, we’ll even stick to Twitter’s strict 140-character limit for each, too…
