Twitter is turning eight years old, however unlike most eight-year-old’s birthday parties I doubt there will be a clown, magic show or trip to a roller skating rink in anyone’s plans (is that what still happens when someone turns eight?) In fact, Twitter has celebrated its birthday in a much better fashion by creating a tool that allows you to search for your, and anyone else’s, first tweet! Naturally, it’s awesome and I highly suggest you check it out.
Of course, I had to search for the first tweets for the TVP Communications team. And if I do say so myself, Kristine and I are tied in terms of most interesting first tweet:
eating a burrito and working…how's that for a first Tweet!

Interesting that as other schools are eliminating sports, Valpo is adding women's bowling… I have all of my NCAA eligibility intact…
