Although the online social networking service, Twitter, does not include the option to display the date when you created your account, it is possible to do so through third-party software. If you are using the Chrome browser, the Born for Twitter extension can display the exact date that your Twitter profile was created. If you are using another browser, the only way to display this information is by using the When Did You Join Twitter? website.

Navigate to the Born for Twitter extension page on the Chrome Web store site (link in Resources), and then click the "Add To Chrome" button.
