It might be hard to imagine these days, but Twitter hasn't always been a "thing." In fact, it's younger than a 5th grader. But how did this now multi-billion dollar company go from an idea for text message-based status updates called "twttr," to the site that crashed during the Oscars thanks to a celeb-filled #selfie? Mashable draws it out for you!

The first time you heard the song #Selfie by The Chainsmokers, you probably wondered if a drunk girl wandered into the studio while they were recording the latest club mix, only to find out that the random ramblings were actually intentionally part of the track. Then you probably wondered if they were serious. The answer might be somewhere between "I don't joke about #selfies" and "duh, of course it's a commentary on our vanity driven society," but either way this cat parody from The Pet Collective is definitely a (pretty funny) joke... and today's Daily Pet! #caturday
Photographer Hector Cruz is doing his part to help destigmatize public breastfeeding. He joined forces with Kalimana Birth Stories to promote Project: BreastFeeding. Cruz says his goal is to educate men on how to be better husbands and fathers and also to empower the women themselves. Cruz was inspired by the birth of his daughter to try and do more as a dad and spouse. Now he needs your help spreading the word and promoting the cause. You can help by donating to Project: BreastFeeding. Be sure to check out their Facebook page, as well as Kalimana Birth Stories.
Wes Naman is one talented photographer. His portraits are like nothing we've ever seen before. Seriously! They're pretty unique. For this series, he wrapped people's faces in scotch tape and snapped the perfect photo. It's hilarious and kind of horrifying, but so very cool. At RightThisMinute we had the chance to Skype with the man who just seems to have a knack for the weirdly awesome. You can see more of Wes Naman's photography right here.

Sports Illustrated is taking Kate Upton to new heights. With zero gravity, Upton modeled in front of several cameras. The shots are pretty awesome and apparently it took years to make this shoot a reality. Click here for the entire video.
Finally! A bumpin' club anthem that celebrates the selfies phenomenon. Check out The Chainsmokers' music video dedicated exclusively to the self-taken photos we all find ourselves snapping at one point or another. Don't lie. We know you do it, too. The Chainsmokers made a call for action and received thousands of selfies, which they then packed into this thumpin' music video. The band also invites you to make your own #LETMETAKEASELFIE video and upload them here. Now break out your smart phone and start practicing that fish face!
We think Mark Malkoff's quirky ideas are pretty awesome. He is attempting to go a whole seven days without using his cell phone. So how's a guy supposed to share a photo without that gadget none of us can now live without? Simple. Do it the old-fashioned way. Watch Mark revert to the late 90s in order to share his "greatest cat picture ever." P.S. Don't forget the hashtag!
It's amazing what Photoshop can do. Hungarian singer Boggie's music video for "Nouveau Parfum" features her singing as she is constantly retouched and "corrected" throughout the video. She goes from a normal-looking girl without makeup to a striking young starlet who looks like she's about to do a magazine photo shoot. The music video was cleverly directed by Nándor Lőrincz and Bálint Nagy. Boggie makes a not-so-subtle point about expectations surrounding female entertainers and viewers get the message loud and clear.
The bond between sisters is a strong one. It may be even tighter now for Sydney and her baby sister, after a photo project turned into an awesome montage of her sibling's first 19 months. This is essentially a full documentation of nearly two years' worth of experiences.
Artist Ivan Cash compiled a random sample of art when he asked strangers to look at the last photo that was taken on their cell phones. The interactive art creates a social background to the design. While a random photo likely has no artistic purpose, the story behind it may evoke a certain creativity. Cash is able to capitalize on the regular pieces of everyday life. The collection was created in New York and California. See the last pics RTM viewers took on their phones here.
Photobombs can be pretty awesome, and they can be even more awesome when they involve animals. From BuzzFeed, check out today's Daily Pet in the form of the greatest animal photobombs of 2013!
We hope this video puts a smile on your face. If you have cancer, we imagine it's not something that's really out of your mind - ever. That's why the Mimi Foundation put together this amazing project, very appropriately titled, "If Only For a Second." They invited 20 cancer patients to take part in a complete makeover but there was one catch: they had to keep their eyes closed the entire time. Watch their amazing reactions once they open their eyes and see themselves completely transformed. They all forget their battle against cancer - if only for a second. Visit the Mimi Foundation to learn more about the organization or to donate funds.
