Apparently Twitter turned eight last week, which only served to remind me how much time I’ve frittered away on Twitter since joining (back in June 2009. Apparently).
Until my seachange Twitter was my fave of social networks though I was a self-confessed binge-tweeter really only using it during my commute to and from work each day.
As part of its birthday celebrations Twitter opened its archives so anyone with a Twitter account could have a reminder of their first tweet. I’m sure like me you’ll hope yours would be something insightful.
Sadly mine were not.
My first (then @rockafellaskank / now @debbishdotcom) tweet was promoting a blog post I’d written about the TV show, Pushing Daisies.
And my first @Schmiet tweet was frightening familiar…
The tweet in question also reflected my first blog post in the blog-formerly-known-as-Diet Schmiet.
They could of course be worse, as I was a tad worried they’d be tweets announcing that they were my first tweets or that I was breaking my Twitter cherry or similar! You know… “I’m here!” kind of thing.
You too can discover your first tweet if you so desire. I just hope it’s more poignant and life-affirming than mine.
Are you brave enough to check out your first tweet?
