Twitter wants you to relive the embarrassment of your first tweet

The more prolific you are on Twitter, the harder it becomes to look back into your past tweets. But for its eighth birthday, Twitter has gotten a little nostalgic and built a tool to let users look up the first tweet of any public account on the site. The results are appropriately hilarious and embarrassing, and you shouldn't be surprised if tweets from last decade start getting retweeted into your feed today. So head back to a time potentially without hashtags or @replies, or even when Twitter was just called Twttr, and see how your own and some of your favorite accounts got started — some great first tweets from Verge staff are below.
