The World's Most Famous First Tweets

Mar 20 2014 - 2:15pm

Twitter started eight years ago today [1], and it's completely transformed the way we connect with our favorite stars. While we're all familiar with stars tweeting up a storm these days, there was a time when every famous person had to awkwardly enter the world of social media. We've rounded up the first tweets from your favorite celebrities, and they range from the all-caps (looking at you, Oprah) to the ironic. (Remember when Taylor Swift [2] was best friends with Justin Bieber and not getting grossed out by him [3]?)

Keep scrolling to read all the first tweets!
