FRONTIER TOWN OPENED ON THIS DAY IN 1858

Denver's First Store Opens 156 Years Ago Today - Do You Go to Denver to Shop ?

On October 29, 1858, the first store opens in a small frontier town in       
Colorado Territory that a month later will take the name of Denver
in a shameless ploy to curry favor with
Kansas Territorial Governor James W. Denver. The town was a  brainchild of a promoter and real estate salesman from Kansas named William H. Larimer Jr.

PLATFORM LAUNCHED ON THIS DAY IN 2006

Twitter - Free social media icons


On July 15, 2006, the San Francisco-based podcasting company Odeo
officially releases Twttr—later changed to Twitter—its short messaging
service (SMS) for groups, to the public.

Born as a side project apart from Odeo’s main podcasting platform, the
free application allowed users to share short status updates with groups
of friends by sending one text message to a single number (“40404”).

Over the next few years, as Twttr became Twitter, the “microblogging”
service would explode in popularity, becoming one of the world’s
leading social networking platforms. Twitter was founded by Evan
Williams and another entrepreneur Noah Glass.
