The first words of 15 of Australia's Twitterati

Posted on January 01, 2014

If you need proof of how fast things move in the tech world, consider this, Twitter is eight years old already. In celebration of their birthday, the social media giant has given us a healthy dose of nostalgia, releasing a tool to show you any user's first tweet. Just like your own first words, some are hilarious and others just bizarre. Check out what some of Australia's most popular celebrities, politicians and sports stars blurted out.

Some needed a little tech help

Others were stuck in Facebook land...

Or didn't quite get the '140 characters or less' rule

At least Andrew Wilke said SOMETHING, unlike our AFL & NRL stars

We have no idea what Barnaby was talking about either

Other stars needed a better PR team, or perhaps just spell check

Many were forced onto it

And a very select few said something genuinely witty.

About the Author

Lachlan Wells

Digital Campaign Manager

Lachlan is an ex-sandgroper who traded the crystal blue waters of Cottesloe Beach for the dreary grey skies of Melbourne. Thankfully, his role as Digital Content Marketer at Optimising, as well as the opportunity to go out on a Monday night, is making it all worthwhile.

After completing a Marketing degree, he started his career in the print heavy world of recruitment advertising (a lot's changed since 2007). As an Account Manager, his job was to become an expert in his client's business, which ranged from global gold mining companies to small independent schools.

In the last few years, he has levelled-up his nerd credentials and creative writing skills in AFA AWARD School. He could care less about AFL, he's too busy worrying about content for his clients.
