Delgado Community College is one of nine community colleges operate under the auspices of the Louisiana Community. The College is named after its founder, the philanthropist Isaac Delgado, a 19th-century immigrant from Jamaica, in 1909, in a codicil to his will, Delgado bequeathed the remainder of his estate to the City of New Orleans to establish a manual trade school for boys. Land was purchased for the 57-acre City Park Campus, the original building on City Park Avenue was constructed and furnished by funding from the Delgado estate. Delgado Central Trades School opened in 1921 with 1,300 boys, the institution thrived in the 1920s but languished during the Great Depression, when there was inadequate funding. It was revived during World War II because of the need for skilled workers in aircraft construction and maintenance and in the metal. The school again fell on hard times in the 1950s, under the leadership of its director, Marvin E.
Thames, Sr. the mission of the college changed. In 1956-1957, Tulane University made a survey of Delgado’s potential role in a changing economy, Tulane proposed that Delgado be expanded to a technical institute at the junior college level and that its main function be to provide technical training. The recommendation was adopted by the Delgado Board of Managers and the New Orleans City Council, as a result, the name of the institution was changed to Delgado Trades and Technical Institute, and a technical two-year college program was implemented.

Registered users can post tweets, but those who are unregistered can only read them, users access Twitter through its website interface, SMS or a mobile device app. Twitter Inc. is based in San Francisco, United States, Twitter was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams and launched in July. The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity, in 2012, more than 100 million users posted 340 million tweets a day, and the service handled an average of 1.6 billion search queries per day. In 2013, it was one of the ten most-visited websites and has described as the SMS of the Internet. As of 2016, Twitter had more than 319 million monthly active users. On the day of the 2016 U. S. presidential election, Twitter proved to be the largest source of breaking news, Twitters origins lie in a daylong brainstorming session held by board members of the podcasting company Odeo.
Jack Dorsey, a student at New York University. The original project name for the service was twttr, an idea that Williams ascribed to Noah Glass, inspired by Flickr. The developers initially considered 10958 as a code, but changed it to 40404 for ease of use. Work on the project started on March 21,2006, when Dorsey published the first Twitter message at 9,50 PM Pacific Standard Time, Dorsey has explained the origin of the Twitter title. we came across the word twitter, and it was just perfect. The definition was a short burst of inconsequential information, and chirps from birds, and thats exactly what the product was. The first Twitter prototype, developed by Dorsey and contractor Florian Weber, was used as a service for Odeo employees. Williams fired Glass, who was silent about his part in Twitters startup until 2011, Twitter spun off into its own company in April 2007. Williams provided insight into the ambiguity that defined this early period in a 2013 interview, With Twitter and they called it a social network, they called it microblogging, but it was hard to define, because it didnt replace anything.
There was this path of discovery with something like that, where over time you figure out what it is, Twitter actually changed from what we thought it was in the beginning, which we described as status updates and a social utility. It is that, in part, but the insight we eventually came to was Twitter was really more of an information network than it is a social network, the tipping point for Twitters popularity was the 2007 South by Southwest Interactive conference. During the event, Twitter usage increased from 20,000 tweets per day to 60,000, the Twitter people cleverly placed two 60-inch plasma screens in the conference hallways, exclusively streaming Twitter messages, remarked Newsweeks Steven Levy
