Friday marks Twitter’s eighth anniversary.
To mark the day, Twitter has released a tool that allows users to view their very first tweet.
Type your Twitter handle into the search field and it spits out your first-ever tweet in its full, date-stamped glory.
Fun fact: You can also look up anyone else’s first tweet. So we did — for everyone here in the NewsChannel 3 newsroom. Take a look — some are VERY entertaining.
Taking action and getting results for Hampton Roads.
