If you’re at all interested in how Twitter was created, 140 Characters provides some of the behind-the-scene details, including how it was originally known as Twttr.com.
It’s an interesting post but, personally, the thing that caught my attention was the domain name – 140 Characters. When I was thinking about starting this blog, one of the biggest hurdles was coming up with a name and a domain to go with it.
It took me weeks and trolling through dozens of potential names before deciding on Twitterrati. At one point, I was all over the idea of using something like “140 Characters or Less” or “140 Chars”. Now, I know who had them!
