Twitter has been around for almost a decade and there is so much that we just don’t know about the social networking service. The one thing we know for sure is that, like most companies, it began small and then became quite large.

Since we are huge fans of Twitter, we figured we’d round up 10 facts about the company/service that aren’t especially well known. Some of these things will definitely shock you while others will probably have you designing your own online social networking business before you’re even through the list.
