Some social media tools are really useful and some are just fun. This falls into the fun or interesting category. Twitter has just released a new tool called First Tweet to celebrate their 8th Birthday. This cool little tool will show you the very first Tweet of any Twitter handle.
Unfortunately for us, our first Tweet was a post from Facebook in 2009 (before knowing this was poor practice!) and since then, we have changed our company name and had to start a new page (due to Facebook’s then policy of not being able to change page names!) We have since merged the two Facebook pages, but that link is no longer working. So…..we thought we’d take a look at the first Tweet of some of the companies and people we follow! If people thought that their first Tweet would ever be reviewed, they may have been a little more creative! The comedians win hands down:)
