And, twitter turns eight years old today, and the social network has a gift for its users! The site has launched a “first tweet” tool to show you anyone’s very first tweet. Twitter is promoting the anniversary with the hash-tag “#firsttweet”. You can search for first tweets by going to first-tweets.com.
By the way, the very first tweet on twitter was sent on this day in 2006, by co-founder Jack Dorsey. He wrote, “Just setting up my TWTTR.”
That’s your Daily Tech.
