What was your first tweet on Twitter?

Do you remember when you joined Twitter? Or what was your first tweet and when? You may be able to find out when you created your Twitter account, but quite possible you may not remember what your first tweet was.

First Tweet on Twitter

Topsy is a service that has indexed all the tweets, including yours, since 2006. If you want to find out what your first tweet was, visit the website and click on the Tweets button.

Type from:YourAccountName in the space and hit the Search icon. I typed from:thewindowsclub.

On the results page, select All Time and Sort by oldest. You will see all your tweets listed, sorted from old tweets to new tweets.

Our first tweet was rather a predictable one. Simply said Welcome to The Windows Club. Tweeted at 3.48 AM on 22nd March 2009.

Go down memory lane. Want to see who tweeted about you first? Type your account name. We typed thewindowsclub and found who were among the first to tweet about us.

  3. My first tweet linked to a video (that I know is still out there somewhere, but I just can’t find it at the moment) which made fun of people who felt the need to tweet where they were and what they were doing every minute of the day. Very funny. My words in the tweet were, “…but I don’t CARE what everyone’s doing every minute of the day” and then it linked to the video. But that video link, I just noticed, is now dead; and I can’t find the video for the moment. I’ll keep looking and update this post if I find it.

    ADDENDUM #1: Okay, I just found the old bookmark to it on my machine, but it, too, is dead… because, as it turns out, the original video was on CURRENT TV, which has since been shut down because it was sold to Al Jazeera. So it’s possible the video’s not still out there after all… but I’m at least hot on its trail. I may still find it. It’s a cartoon…. I think it was called “The Twouble with Twitter” or something like that. If anyone can find it, let me know.

    ADDENDUM #2: Ha! Found it!
