So, to celebrate its eighth birthday Twitter has launched something called First Tweet, where you can discover any Twitter user’s, well, first tweet.
For fun, I decided to do a search on each of the Aussie Owned and Read bloggers and see what their immortal first words were. They don’t know I’m doing this, so I hope there’s nothing too embarrassing there…
Aussie Owned and Read
Hahaha, I love these girls! 😀
In the interests of fairness, here’s mine:
I’d be interested to know, what was your first tweet? Have you seen any absolute corkers? It’s a funny thing, because almost everyone (with the exception of Joss Whedon, who got over 100k followers in 24 hours) tweets their first tweet to an audience of one. They’ll have no followers, and no one will notice. This tool lets everyone go back and see what those potentially embarrassing mumblings were. (For example, @abcnews, our national broadcaster’s news network, tweeted “pwn3d”. That’s what happens when you let the work experience kid set up the account, I suppose.)
Beth Chase is too busy planning perfect weddings to worry about the lack of action in her own love life. But if she was looking for a man, she wouldn’t be looking at Colin Pratt. Her boss swears that Best Man Colin is a quiet scholar and science fiction writer who couldn’t possibly cause a fuss at his own brother’s wedding. He’s clearly never met the man in question. Snarky, sexy and more than a little inebriated, Colin is the final obstacle between Beth and the last perfect wedding she needs to make partner. Of course, when she helps him into a taxi at the end of the night she has no idea that he’s only just begun to poke holes in her professional exterior. Colin might have the skills to seduce a romance professional, but can he convince her that he’s the best man to share her happy ever after?

Entering is easy. Just tweet @ana_blaze and include the hashtag #TheBestMan between midnight EST on 7 June 2013 (NOW!) and 11:59 p.m. EST on 8 June 2013!
For example, you could tweet:
@ana_blaze I married #TheBestMan I know.
@ana_blaze #TheBestMan is on my must read list.
@ana_blaze #TheBestMan made me breakfast in bed.
@ana_blaze I love sexy nerds. #TheBestMan
@ana_blaze I wish Beth would plan my wedding. #TheBestMan
@ana_blaze Being #TheBestMan is tough, but someone’s gotta do it.
or even just:
@ana_blaze I want to read #TheBestMan!
You get the idea. Twitter rules ask that we don’t have too many duplicate tweets, so it’s best (and frankly way more cool) if you come up with your own tweet. Ana is really looking forward to seeing what folks come up with. And hoping for some tweets about how to be #TheBestMan. It’s also best if you are following Ana on Twitter. Apparently that’s the only way to guarantee that your tweet shows up in the search.
You’re welcome to tweet (and enter) more than once, but please not more than once an hour. Let’s not annoy the Twitter-folk too much.
This contest is open internationally.
Void where prohibited. 😦
