Find your first tweet on Twitter (without the scrolling)
Published 25/03/2014 | 02:23
Twitter has launched a new find-your-first-tweet function.
Simply head over to first-tweets.com and punch in your @handle in order to find what your own stuttering first words were.
Previously, if you wanted to find someone's old messages on Twitter you had to scroll back through hundreds, even thousands, of tweets.
"Millions of prolific tweeters have made Twitter an exciting, fun and powerful place to connect with others," says Gabriel Stricker, Twitter's vice president of marketing and communications.
"But each of you had to start somewhere. You can celebrate your #FirstTweet, too. 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."
The first tweet ever on the service came from Twitter’s founder Jack Dorsey, who announced on 21 March 2006 that he was “just setting up my twttr” (the disemvowelled version being the codename for Twitter).
