DENVER — In honor of its eighth birthday, Twitter has set up a tool to help its users reminisce about the day they dove head first into the newest social media network.
With so many users now having produced so many tweets, the new tool helps you head back in time with the click of a button — back to a day when there were no such thing hashtags or @replies, and Twitter itself was actually referred to as Twttr.
You can see how your own account was born, and how some of your favorite followers started their their own journey into the realm of 140 characters or less.
We’ve been doing a little reminiscing ourselves. It turns out some of our first tweets were a little more noteworthy than others…
This I Promise You: N'SYNC's "No Strings Attached" is Billboard's Album of the Decade. Wow. My first tweet is about Justin Timberlake.
