Search for Year One Tweets

July 30, 2012

TechCrunch recently reported on the launch of a new Twitter search engine founded by Kellan Elliott McCrea in the article “OldTweets Reveals Twitter Founders’ First Tweets, And Yours Too (Wow They Were Boring.”

According the article, OldTweets is a tool allows users to access the 20,000,000 tweets from Twitter’s first year up and running from 2006 to 2007.

After poking fun of Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey’s first tweet, the article states:

“What does OldTweets tell us? Well, mainly that we were super-dull people on Twitter at first. (Maybe we still are, but have lost our sense of self-awareness?). Yes, we were tweeting the mundane details of our lives back then. As TechCrunch blogger-turned-VC MG Siegler notes of the early tweets, ‘my god they were boring.’ (One of his first, appropriately: ‘writing a blog post.’)”

Lucky for us, after SXSW 2007, the rate of tweeting across the United States increased dramatically and so too did the creativity of the content.
