Earliest Tweeter documented - It was Rabe's nephew

I'm pretty sure my nephew Jim Nevala (@nevajim) was the earliest user of Twitter.

It's so long ago, I can't even remember when I made this short film incorporating his poetic Tweets from Pocatello ID. It's called Stupid Rain.

   

Checking the date, I see it goes back to 2009.

That far back, it was still called Twitter-Listserve.
