Ducks Gameday: Battle of California's First Tweets

New, 8 comments

Look at the stupid things these idiots said. Panthers @ Ducks.

For Twitter's eighth anniversary, they recently launched a tool that allows you to go back in time and read your very first tweet. For most of us, our first tweet was quite a few years ago (as anyone who hasn't signed up for Twitter by 2014 is a fucking dinosaur who has let the world pass them by), so it was fun to go back and see what inspiring messages we had for the world years ago when we first started experimenting with this brave new world.

Here's my first tweet...

Poetry.

After taking a look at my own, I decided to see what some of the other Battle of California folks had to say upon joining the Twitterverse.

Megalodon's first tweet was of course dumb and boring because he is dumb and boring.

Ryan Dunn, being a poor person, complains about being poor and unable to afford cable or full priced books:

Earl Sleek got off to a much better start, acquiring followers and fame before even bothering to tweet:

Rudy Kelly really had this Twitter thing fingured out right from the start, jumping immediately to the more appropriate uses of the platform:

Spade tweeted about the grammar class he was taking at the time...

And founder of Battle of California James Mirtle was too hopped up on crack to figure out how the system even worked:

As you can see, we are all very exciting people.

Here are the official team Twitter accounts, which weren't exciting at all.

San Jose insists that everything receive its undo fanfare, and its first tweet is no exception:

And the Los Angeles and Anaheim had equally boring launches...

Finally, I leave you with this final first tweet, offering some timeless inspiration...
