A lot of people don’t really know how twitter looked like when they launched. After seeing a tweet about how facebook looked like during the early days I decided to find out how twitter looked like in the beginning

Twitter in 2005

Picture below was taken from broken-tv and according to them this was the how twitter look like before the domain was bought over by the founders of the Twitter now.

Twitter in 2006 – Official Launch

Twitter in 2008

This was how twitter actually look like when I joined back in 2008 (my old account). This was the page up to 2009 when they decided to change the layout again.

    Or if you use Twitter clients, a page you don't ever look at 😉 Neat post though!

    Very cool, thanks Aaron! Would love to see more 2006 shots of the site – what did the public timeline look like back then, pre-hashtags, etc. Only comment is I don't agree with “This is what you look at everyday.” In fact, most Twitter users rarely or never see the logged-out homepage of because they are always logged in!
