Twitter celebrates 7 years with this self-congratulatory video

Look back at the beginnings and accomplishments of the service

By  

Twitter announced its 7th birthday/anniversary today with this pat-itself-on-the-back video, showing some of the early Tweets and other accomplishments (including Oprah's first tweet and Shaq's reply to her) from the past seven years.

The service now claims more than 200 million active users, who send more than 400 million Tweets every day, Twitter said.

What will the next seven years bring for Twitter? Hopefully fewer fail whales.
