5,000 tweets and counting
5,000 Twitter tweets and counting. That’s right folks I’ve just passed 5,000 updates on Twitter. It scares me and yet I feel strangely proud. Perhaps I need to get out more, of course I can post to Twitter from my cell phone, so I guess there’s no escaping it.
This morning I did a little backtracking to find my first tweet. On February 18, 2007, I tweeted that I was putting my son to bed. It was pretty cool to flip back through my tweets to see what I was up to back then. The highlights of that day included spending time with my family, dealing with a cold, and enjoying the Tennessee weather. It seems not a lot has changed in almost one year of Twittering.
When did you start to Twitter? To find out go to your profile page and scroll to the bottom. Hit the Older button. Note that the page URL will look like this: http://twitter.com/davedelaney?page=2. Now change that number 2 too 200 and hit the new URL. Anything? If not, just reduce that 200 number until you see your tweets. You’ll be able to determine your first tweet pretty quickly from there.
I’d love to know your date you started and what your first tweet was. Please share it here in the comments.
