MAGAZINE   21 March 2011  Last updated at 10:33  Twitter, telegram and e-mail: Famous first lines By Tom Geoghegan  BBC News Magazine  Twitter launched five years ago with the simple message "just setting up my twttr". In the same way,  many technological breakthroughs that ultimately shaped the world began life, not with a fanfare of  trumpets, but with a few humble words. "Alright, so here we are in front of the elephants." And so with great understatement, the first words were uttered on YouTube, in its first video posted in April  2005.   Me at the Zoo  depicts co-founder Jawed Karim at San Diego Zoo. And yes, he's in front of the  elephants.  Six years, and billions of page views later, YouTube has become part of the media landscape,  used by the Queen, world leaders and the owners of pets that do weird things.
