Twitter have made it what it is today, and on its fifth birthday — the company published a new video embedded below, featuring numerous celebrities explaining how and why they use the service.

The company is also, a new website, blog posts, and has a national TV appearance on tap, too.

Finally, if you’re more interested in the tech side of Twitter’s five years, a blog post on the company’s engineering blog explains how Twitter was “moved” twice last year to make the service more stable:
