Twitter is getting ready to celebrate its eighth birthday on Friday and it's marking the occasion with a present for its users.
Anyone can find their first tweet with this first tweet tool.
"Millions of prolific tweeters have made Twitter an exciting, fun and powerful place to connect with others," wrote Stricker. "But each of you had to start somewhere: Today we're taking a look at some choice first Tweets -- first Tweets that sparked a conversation, used imagery to tell a story, or revealed unfiltered self expression."
For instance, Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter, first tweeted, "just setting up my twtttr."
The first tweet by Madeleine Albright, the first female U.S. secretary of state, was,"First of 3 female SecState's - last to join Twitter. Better late than never!"
