CINCINNATI -- As Twitter celebrates its eighth anniversary Friday, the social media giant is giving you, the user, a gift.
Twitter introduced a free tool this week that lets users relive their first tweets. All you have to do is type your Twitter handle into a search field and it spits out your first-ever tweet in its full, date-stamped glory.
In honor of this momentous occasion in social media history, we’ve decided to pull together the first tweets of some of the Tri-State’s biggest movers and shakers and most influential people or groups.
