Twitter celebrates 8th birthday

  • Twitter is taking millions of its users back to their first tweets on its 8th birthday. 

    The service launched a website called first-tweets.com and users can look for their own or other people's accounts to read the first tweets. 

    "Millions of prolific tweeters have made Twitter an exciting, fun and powerful place to connect with others," vice president of marketing Gabriel Stricker said. "But each of you had to start somewhere."

    "HI TWITTERS . THANK YOU FOR A WARM WELCOME. FEELING REALLY 21st CENTURY," Oprah Winfrey's first tweet read in 2009.
