In honour of Throwback Thursday and, which is completely different than Throw Your Back Out Thursday, which I intend to start celebrating in the next few years and Twitter’s 8th birthday, they’ve released an easy to find out what your first Tweet ever was. It’s a fun way to look back and what was the first message you wanted to put out to the world was all those years ago!
So I took some time today to gather up a bunch of notable Calgarians first Tweets!
is scared of p diddy.

I'm tweeting now. Kelly told me too. 2 rules: I won't give you totally senseless stuff and I won't give you totally useless stuff.

I think Roger is talking about Kelly Doody, so let’s check out her first Tweet:
