Founded and launched 9 years by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone and Evan Williams Twitter has become not only part of everyday life but the name itself is now part of everyday language.

With 302 million active users it is fair to say that a lot is shared daily and for some it’s the first point of call for information on developing stories as they happen.

Twitter has released to look back at this #YearOnTwitter. The dedicated site takes a look at the global activity on Twitter highlighting the most influential stories of the year, a selection of new voices that joined Twitter this year including President Obama (@POTUS) and Caitlyn Jenner (@Caitlyn_Jenner), the most retweeted tweets and the top trends.
