We’re all for inspiring ideas – even when they’re just scribbles on the back of napkins or messy drawings on a legal pad. Campfire points us to a simple yet telling sketch of what was to become the social microblogging giant known as Twitter – as it was first mapped out by its creators. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey shares one of the original drawings of the idea behind Twitter on his flickr and includes an interesting explanation of how the concept came about.

Upon further investigation, we found some more photos of inspiring early sketches of ideas that have since become successful ventures, including Flickr Places and Vimeo. Check them out at Deeplinking.
