While Twitter was originally founded for people to share moments of their lives, which could be very significant or totally ordinary, Twitter co-founder Evan Williams said that much of the growth of the service came unexpectedly from users themselves. Williams gave a facinating TedTalk about Twitter.
People began to tweet about their professions, their hobbies, their sports teams, etc. This allowed people with similar interests to follow each other and to grow a personal Twitter community where they co uld learn more about their passions.
