In light of Twitter's 8th birthday, it's created a "tweet tool" so we can reminisce about our baby tweets. It finds your very first tweet and lets you share it once again.
Twitter officially launched on March 19, 2006, but lots of folks didn't take to the microblogging site until years later. KPCC joined in January 2008 — and we were pretty open about the novelty of it all. Fast forward six years, and we're Twitter pros!
Here's a look at what other Angelenos had to say with their first 140 characters. Twitter has collected some on its blog here, too. Share your #FirstTweets in the comments.
