Remember your first tweet?

MUMBAI: After tweeting hundreds of time, do you sometimes wonder what your first tweet was? Well, just use the newly launched tool by Twitter as it celebrates its eighth birthday.


Ideas, anecdotes, opinions, experiences and achievements, among other things have been expressed in 140 characters since 2006, the year the now-much talked about social networking site was first introduced.


While in these eight years, many have posted thousands of posts on Twitter to share joy, sadness, crib or even socialise. But there was no way one could find out their first tweet, except for scrolling down the long list to see it.


So, to make life easier, Twitter is now taking people on a nostalgic ride.


And as many people are busy finding out their own first tweets, we bring to you a list of the first tweets by the media biggies.
