Twitter is 10 years old. Thinking back, can you remember what your first tweet was? Fortunately, Twitter is way ahead of you. Two years ahead of you in fact.
To celebrate Twitter's 8th birthday (so 2 years ago), the social network took the initiative, making it really easy to find your very first tweet, or perhaps more interestingly, the first tweet of anyone else.
All you have to do is head to https://discover.twitter.com/first-tweet where any Twitter handle can be typed in to display that user's first tweet. That includes the exact date and time it was published.
There is also a button to "Tweet it", taking meta to a whole new self-indulgent level. A case of history repeating itself.
The Pocket-lint team had a pretty broad mix of topics over the varying times we joined the Twitter movement. Can you see who ditched their old account and started anew?
