Check Out The First-Ever Tweets Of Tech's Most Famous Stars

In the same way that no one likes looking at pictures of themselves from middle school, rediscovering your first tweet can be embarrassing.

Today, to celebrate its 8th birthday, Twitter will give you easy access to your first ever post.

Many tech execs started tweeting ages ago and have racked up thousands of tweets. However, not all of them had a particularly grand Twitter debut. The first tweets run the gamut from insightful, cryptic, steriotypical (they’re just like us!), to the straight-up bizarre.
