Our first tweets from Twitter archives

Published April 3, 2013

Twitter allows people to dig back through its archives to uncover the initial fumbling attempts at writing in 140 characters. Here’s ours.

Twitter is now a 24-hour news wire, a nonstop flow of stories, photos, videos, and yes, sometime what people had for lunch, that is informative and entertaining. It has been embraced by the church, with bishops, cardinals, and Pope Francis – at @Pontifex – to send messages to the world.

Many thanks to our 2,349 followers on Twitter.  Please join us at @georgiabulletin.

First tweet. Ever.

First Retweet

@erika_anderson The lesson is I need to rewire my brain to use Tweets as a place to find sources. Thanks for the tip. Next time.

First photo: Share photos on twitter with Twitpic

The photo, if memory serves me right, was taken at an interfaith forum at The Temple, Atlanta. That’s Archbishop Gregory, second from left.
