Twitter lets you see your first tweet

-

Unless you have a photographic memory or just joined Twitter last week, you probably don’t recall your first tweet.

To commemorate Friday’s eighth anniversary of the first Twitter message, Twitter has introduced a tool that lets users relive their Twitter debuts. Type your Twitter handle into the search field and it spits out your first-ever tweet in its full, date-stamped glory — typos, clever witticisms, clumsy hashtags and all.

Here are more first tweets from various people groups and organisations :
