Twitter is eight – do you remember your #FirstTweet?

By: March 21, 2014

Twitter is eight today. Happy birthday Twitter. Do you remember your first tweet? Well, thanks to the wonders of the Twitter machine you can find it here using this handy tool: #FirstTweet.

You may as well tweet it again, using the hashtag #FirstTweet, for the craic like. To amuse your followers – or lose them.

My first tweet for Digital Times was: “Writing a feature on local search advertising”. Obviously I had a very keen sense of how to build followers back then. ;)

Twitter has also kindly sent us a list of some of Ireland’s top tweeters and their first tweets. We think Graham Norton wins this #FirstTweet competition.

@McIlroyRory
Very windy at cog hill today! Only managed 5 holes this morning. Hopefully it will be a little better for the pro am tomorrow.

@BrianODriscoll
Finally I send my first tweet. Never was one for being a guinea pig. More to follow soon.

@amyhuberman
Brand new feathery fledgling!

@GrahNort
Playing the piano with Sir David Jason and June Brown. Sort of wish I wasn’t wearing a Christmas jumper – oh and that I could actually play!

And below is a video about eight interesting Twitter facts.
