The first day of March Madness on Thursday is a huge day for Twitter. A good percentage of men are ‘sick’ or recovering from vasectomies in order to watch and partake in the twittering. Twitter pushed their own agenda on Thursday by introducing a site that allows you to see your first tweet ever. Not only can you see yours, but you can look up anybody’s… so I did.
The following are the first tweets ever by the Minnesota Twins and some of their current players. It’s really amazing to see how far we have all come in a couple of years.
Welcome to Twins Territory! This is the official Twitter of the Minnesota Twins! Vote for Twins All-Stars at http://twinsbaseball.com

What is this thing?

Perk wins Twitter a lot, so it is no surprise that his first one was a good one.

First tweet ever. Breakfast with @gabekapler and @TylerSkaggs23. This should be interesting….

Plouffe kicked off his Twitter career with a food tweet. Classic Twitter.
Going to see Horrible Bosses. I heard it is incredibly funny

I really liked Horrible Bosses. Kevin Spacey, Charlie Day… Jennifer Aniston… Oh, Jennifer Aniston.
Thanks to all my followers, still figuring this out.

Kind of like how he’s still trying to figure out the whole pitching thing.

I literally tweeted in my first tweet. My tweets have shown little to no improvement in nearly five years.
I tweet, therefor I’ve given in. Whoa is me.

Just knowing Paul’s writing style through tweets, emails and pieces here. This is so Paul.
@sportsguy33 You mean the two most recent podcasts right, not the final two? I am having a heart attack…

Erik’s first tweet being about Puckett’s Pond makes an editor’s heart sing.
looking forward to this weekend up at the cabin and then back home for Xav’s going away party!

I hope your first tweet was a beauty. Now go back to watching college basketball.
