Today marks nine years since Twitter entered our lives introducing to the dizzying world of hashtags, handles and status updates all in 140 characters or less.

To mark the occasion Marin Software has created an infographic of the social media giant's highlights over the last nine years.

Marin Software EMEA vice president and managing director, Jon Myers, said over the years Twitter has "worked hard to attract brands" from broadening advertising options to new capabilities.

"These moves have been important for brands, who might otherwise fear their message could be drowned out by the sheer volume of noise on the platform - over 9,000 tweets are posted every second," he added.

"The bottom line is that Twitter will continue to attract brands if the advertising works and if users are kept happy; keeping this balance in check will be critical. The signs are that, for now at least, it is doing a good job."
