Happy 10th birthday, Twitter! Also, behold our inspirational first tweet

Posted By on Mon, Mar 21, 2016 at 6:22 PM

Here is our first ever tweet. It's kind of perfect that we're complaining about our workload in our first ever tweet, from almost eight years ago (hello, early adopters). Today, of course, we know better than to succumb to such mundanities.

After all, we have naked cowboys, poisoned children in Flint, both vodka and whiskey-based events, plus all manner of Juggalo goings-on to constantly tweet at you these days. And the occasional GIF that really drives the point of a story home, of course. 

Wanna see your first tweet? Click here (and make sure you share it with us in the Comments).
