If you want to devote a whole 5 or 10 seconds and see your first tweet on Twitter, there’s an easier way than scrolling back to the beginning. Visit Twitter’s  discover.twitter.com/first-tweet page just launched to celebrate their 8th birthday. (Happy birthday, Twitter!) Plug in your handle and…voila.

Then again, you can always spend more time than that and do what we did:  look up a bunch of random celebs and Twitterati to see their own first tweets.
