My First Tweet

The idea is pretty simple: Create a giant database of people's first tweets. Think of it as an anthropological dig through Twitter.


I have been thinking a lot lately about the idea that the web is just a giant social experiment and we are all amateur anthropologists. So with that in mind I decided to build My First Tweet. The idea is simple, create a giant database of people's first words on Twitter so that we can all analyze them.

Once the dataset is of reasonable size I plan on releasing it to the world to play with (after all, we should all get the chance to be amateur anthropologists, right?)

Anyway, click around, enjoy yourself and find your first tweet.
