The Design Community’s First Tweets

I recently found a website that allows you to see the first tweet sent out by typing in the person’s user name. Now that most of us have been using Twitter for at least a year, it seemed like a good time to take a look back at some of your first tweets!

Unfortunately, it doesn’t allow you to see the first tweet if that person has over 3,500 updates, so I apologize to the likes of Calvin (@mayhemstudios) and others that I could not list here. I wonder if there are better Twitter tools for finding people’s first tweets? Let me know in the comments.

@brianyerkes: “Working on a post for BrianJosephStudios.com

@DavidAirey: “Just starting out with Twitter” (wow, insightful David. Nice one :P )

@randaclay: “I’m trying to write an article comparing Twitter, Pownce, Jaiku and Tumblr. It’s taking me too long…” (I accuse Randa of deleting her first ever tweet! Randa, please comment :P )

@idesignstudios: “The new web site is now officially LIVE! I would love to get your feedback! http://www.idesignstudios.com”

@blogdesigner: “I believe it’s important for your twitter account design to match your website design. Anyone else agree? Branding … :)”

and my favorite first tweet is from @seanHodge:
