Twitter turned 10 years old today. Yay. Happy Birthday, Twitter. And as part of their birthday, they have made a fun little way to check what everyone's first tweet was. Oh, fun.
So, I decided to look at the Nets, their players and the people who cover the team and share with you their first tweets. Here goes!
