Do you remember your first tweet on Twitter, a now ubiquitous social media service that has become sort of a crowd-sourced text messaging app?
Twitter’s first tweet tool saves you the scrolling — and what started as a mostly between friends group messaging app now boasts a place in history with events like the Arab Spring and active accounts maintained by world leaders.
It’s been eight years since any first tweets were posted to Twitter, and to mark that anniversary, Twitter has launched a tool to bring up your very first presence on the worldwide social site.
