Newsflash! Twitter is 8 years old today (March 21, 2014)!
And to commemorate their eighth anniversary, Twitter has introduced a new tool that allows users relive their Twitter debuts. Type your Twitter handle into the search field and it spits out your first-ever tweet in its full, date-stamped glory — typos, clever witticisms, clumsy hashtags and all.

If you’re a part of the social media madness, I’m sure you know how entertaining twitter can be at times.
Everybody knows that I loves me some twitter! And as a blogger, tweeting has become a part of my everyday.
Check out the ‘first tweets’ of a few of your favorite Atlanta celebs like Tyler Perry, Usher, Big Boi, and more under the cut…
Ok, my first tweet. It looks like fun. I'm getting on a plane in a little while on my way to Vegas. I'm going to The Hoodie Awards 🙂 .
