Happy birthday, Twitter. The social media service is already a decade old, if you can believe that. Hard to imagine, but we once lived in a world where not every single celebrity was constantly tweeting about their breakfast, lunch and dinner. Or having random feuds with other celebrities. Or posting tons of selfies.
Really, it wasn’t that long ago that some celebs didn’t know how to tweet at all. And thanks to a Tweet generator that can tell you what anyone’s first tweet was, we have some prime examples.
