This Twitter tool lets you see the very first tweets of Miley Cyrus, Barack Obama and everyone else.
Tweeting on the mic to her boy's toys.
Twitter is weird. We're used to it now, but when it was still new to us, most of us weren't quite sure just what we were supposed to do with 140 characters. So, if you go back and look at your very first tweet—which this new mini-site from Twitter lets you do—you may be surprised at how awkwardly you arrived in this new technology.
The same can be true for celebrities, who were probably thrilled at this opportunity to finally let down their hair and talk to their fans off the cuff like real people:
Hey World, It's B! I'm so excited to invite you to my new http://t.co/fZxlrtAh - we've been working hard, and it's finally ready for you XO— Beyoncé Knowles (@Beyonce) April 5, 2012
Welcome to the official Miley Cyrus "Gypsy Heart Tour" twitter page!!!— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) March 30, 2011
To be fair, some celebrities started off a little less marketing firm-ish:
@TeamKardashians OMG your background is FIRE!!!! I want my pics bigger I think, will u help me?— Kim Kardashian (@KimKardashian) October 25, 2008
Ha! What a pathetic number of retweets. Nowadays, if she tweets out some nonsense that most of us mumble to ourselves while brushing our teeth, she gets 6K retweets. And it's nothing compared to the response to her husband's first tweet:
