Dorsey's 2006 sketch of Twitter

The original product name or codename for the service was twttr, inspired by Flickr and the fact that American SMS short codes are five characters. The developers initially experimented with “10958″ as a short code, though later changed it to “40404″ for “ease of use and memorability.”[7] Work on the project started on March 21, 2006, when Dorsey published the first Twitter message at 9:50 PM Pacific Standard Time (PST): “just setting up my twttr”.[9] wikipedia.org
