So you want to know the day that you joined Twitter? And maybe you’d like to see your first tweet?
Here’s how to do both in one go, courtesy of those fine folks at Topsy.
Remember your first tweet?
Last week we documented how a new update from Topsy made it really easy for anyone to find their very-first tweets that they wrote on Twitter and, as you would expect, for most of us, they’re pretty lame.
But what about Twitter’s elite? Surely their first tweets were absolutely amazing? What an opportunity to shine!
Today, social analytics platform Topsy has unveiled a huge upgrade, adding Twitter’s entire history of 425 billion public tweets to its archives, which are available in all Topsy products, including the free tools on Topsy.com.
What this means is that you can freely and quickly search every public tweet ever written on Topsy, including (but not limited to) your own.
And because you can view these tweets in reverse-chronological order, it’s now really, really easy to see your first-ever tweets.
Back in December Twitter began rolling out its long-awaited Twitter archive feature, which allows users to download a complete index of every tweet they’ve ever sent from their profile (including retweets), going all the way back to the day that they joined.
It’s taken a while but the feature has now rolled out to all users, and in this article we’ll show you how to download your Twitter archive and what you need to do to view it.
Twitter has announced a big and important change to its search functionality, and it’s an upgrade that pretty much everybody who has been active on Twitter for more than a week has been crying out for.
And here it is: older tweets now show up in search results on Twitter.
I repeat: older tweets now show up in search results on Twitter.
Since the launch of the first iPhone back in 2007, finding the latest and greatest tech gadget in your stocking has become almost a ritual for a lot of (albeit well-off) families at Christmas, and many folks are so excited with their new electronic toy that they immediately take to Twitter to share the news.
This year, tablets were expected to play a major role as Christmas gift purchases, with the iPad, iPad Mini, Amazon Kindle, Google Nexus and Microsoft Surface all hoping to grab a big share of that lucrative pie. So who won?
If you’re new to Twitter or know someone who is, you’ll want to read this post.
We hear a lot about folks being hesitant to tweet because they’re afraid they’ll look foolish in some way, so instead they just silently observe – yet inside they long to join the fray. Know this: Twitter stage fright is the same as public speaking – you have to get out there and do it. It’s the only way to conquer it.
And we have some advice that will ease your mind.
If you’re curious about what you tweeted six months ago, or what your first tweet ever was, you’ll be disappointed if you try to search for it on Twitter.com. Twitter doesn’t let you view your tweets older than about ten days, and even less if you are a prolific tweeter. However, there are some services out there that will let you view your old tweets, and even download them to save them for posterity.
Here’s a story about a man, a tweet, and a small pledge that ballooned to $7000 in minutes. It’s also about honor on Twitter, which is something we see too rarely these days.
