Twitter Celebrates 8th Birthday With #FirstTweet Tool

Twitter LogoTwitter today is celebrating its eighth birthday. With 500 million tweets sent per day and 240 million active global users, Twitter is using the marking the occasion by giving everyone the opportunity to look back at the first tweets for any user.

“Eight years later, our users have transformed Twitter into place where you can discover new ideas, make real human connections and express yourself freely,” Twitter said in a blog post. “Today we’re taking a look at some choice first Tweets — first Tweets that sparked a conversation, used imagery to tell a story, or revealed unfiltered self expression.”

The post highlights the very #FirstTweet sent on Twitter – by Jack Dorsey when Twitter was known as Twttr.

Twitter shares the first tweets from Madeleine Albright, Cameron Diaz, Warren Buffett, Lindsey Vonn, Kobe Bryant, Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton, and many more.

“You can celebrate your #FirstTweet, too,” said Twitter. “Using this Tweet tool, you can look back to find your very first Tweet — or for that matter, anyone else’s. Just type in your @username, or that of anyone — your best pal, favorite comedian, a star or a president.”

For examples, here’s Google’s first tweet:
