Twitter’s original name was “Twttr.”
Emerging in 2005, a trend involving dropping vowels out of the names of programs and companies grew in popularity. Noah Glass, a software developer, created the original name “Twttr” but later decided to change the name to “Twitter.”
The site made $0 in its first three years.
Shockingly, the popularity of the site still hasn’t helped Twitter’s revenue. In 2016, the company had $602 million in sales but a net loss of $107 million.
