Want to check your first ever tweet? Here's the way
The Twitter we see today was a lot different from the one that launched 13 years ago; it had humble beginnings, a different name, and a few test users. In fact, it was this month itself when Jack Dorsey, the founder and CEO of the company, had sent out the first ever tweet on the platform. Here's how you can find your first tweet.
What Dorsey had tweeted out
On March 21, 2006, Dorsey had shared, "just setting up my twttr" as his and the platform's first tweet. He called the service 'twttr' in the post because back in the day, the platform had the same moniker, and not Twitter (given at a later date). Following this, twttr started expanding, gaining users to transform into the microblogging giant we know today.

How can you see your first ever tweet?
Now, Dorsey's tweet may leave you wondering what you had tweeted for the first time after signing up on the platform. This can be checked with some simple steps, but you should know the month and year of your joining. If you don't know the joining date, head over to your Twitter profile and check the calendar icon on the right side.
Then, search with this pattern
After discovering the month and year of your joining, head over to the search box on Twitter's mobile app or website and enter the date in this format: from:username since:yyyy-mm-dd until:yyyy-mm-dd. Then, enter the first and last date of the month ahead of 'since' and 'until' to see all the tweets posted during that month, including the first one.
Alternatively, you can also use advanced search page
If entering the search code seems hefty, head to Twitter's advanced search page to filter your tweet by the same dates. The same trick can also be used to swift through tweets posted by other users for any month and year.
