Today marks the eighth anniversary of Twitter and its iconic bird flying into our lives. To celebrate this day, Twitter released the First Tweet search tool, which allows users to search their own account or other accounts to find their first tweet.
Here’s @PokerNews' first tweet:
Hello, poker players! We are starting to Tweet about poker. Here we will provide some poker news and gossip, so please follow us.Follow @PokerNews
It’s fair to say that we have come a long way from that awkward first step into the realm of 140 characters or less.
We’ve searched through some of our favorite poker personalities to find the best #FirstTweets. Expectedly, most were tournament updates. But others were fun, some were quirky, and others were just plain weird.
