Twitter gave new meaning to the hashtag and with it, created a platform for anybody and everybody to share their thoughts, views, lunch pictures and videos with the digital world. And for those of us who couldn't get enough of our favourite celebrities, the social media birdie connected fans to personalities on a level that was both personal and global.

So on 21 March, when Twitter celebrated having spent a decade of letting people share their lives in 140 characters or less, celebrities took the opportunity to thank the micro-blogging platform by posting their wishes... where else, but on Twitter.

Twitter's rant king Kanye West rarely needs a reason to post a tweet but this time around he skipped the birthday wishes. Instead, wife Kim Kardashian responded to a message from Twitter and thanked it for being "the best avenue for communication".

With 77.5 million followers, Justin Bieber wished Twitter with a video of himself singing Happy Birthday.

Katy Perry also sent out wishes calling the platform "the BEST way to stay connected worldwide". The Roar singer also made a request we might all be waiting for as well — an edit icon.

TV presenter Piers Morgan told it as it is with a tweet that read, "I hated you, then I loved you, now I'm addicted to you."

Arnold Schwarzenegger referred to Twitter as the "epitome of the California Dream" in his post.

Katie Lowes, who plays Quinn Perkins on the ABC drama Scandal, tweeted a cute message saying "You don't look a day over 8". She also made use of the trending hashtag #LoveTwitter.

The Mindy Project's Mindy Kaling brought her sense of humour to her tweet: "I love you. You're like my best friend who I talk to endlessly but don't have to listen to their problems."

The voice of Olaf from Frozen, Josh Gad, teased Twitter about entering puberty saying, "You are growing into a fine woman with some aggressive male tendencies."

Apple CEO Tim Cook also took the opportunity to congratulate the company on turning ten.
