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.
Topsy can not only list your or any accounts tweets, but also offers advanced social analytics. It can also show you the Links to thewindowsclub.com and Replies to @thewindowsclub, apart from a lot other information.
Do check out Topsy.com, I promise you it will be a good learning experience – and you will have fun in the process.
We’d love to hear what your first tweet was. If possible, do post its URL too.
