Okay, maybe I don’t remember that first tweet. I didn’t join Twitter for sports. Shocking, I know. I joined for…online shopping deals. Truth be told, I dislike shopping. I’m not your stereotypical-woman that loves to shop. If I can avoid it, I do. But, I can’t so I’d rather find a deal online, if possible.
No thanks. Give me my sports! But, as I slowly discovered sports journalists on Twitter, I realized that Twitter was a dream come true for me.
Instantaneous sports news.
Twitter is turning 8 today. To celebrate, they’ve provided a great resource for everyone to discover their firsts too: first-tweets.com. As I’m sure you’ll see often throughout today, people can find the first tweets of others too. I thought I’d see what others firsts were like and if they were as lame as mine. When checking, I had such high expectations for some and was left feeling wanting.
For good measure, I threw in a few brand tweets too.
I'm on Twitter, Baby!—
