I’ve been trying to find my first tweet ever on Twitter. I’ve had my account @Milionare since August 7, 2009… which is almost 3 years. I don’t remember my first tweet. And I’ve tried various sites on searching tweets, but some of the best ones (according to their descriptions) have shut down and all the others either require typing the words on the tweet to find them (which I forgot), require hashtag, or are limited to 3,200 tweets. I also noticed that deleting some tweets, will bypass the 3,200 limit by showing older tweets. But considering I have over 13,500 tweets… no way am I deleting over 10,000 tweets just for that.
I guess you could say I’m clever, I also tried tracking the tweets back to August 7, 2009 by changing number on Twitter links like this for example: https://twitter.com/sborsch/status/3185250508. But considering over 10 million tweets were made that day… I decided to call the “number-flipping” method quits. Either that, or I’d go through all those tweets just to find my first tweet.
I also read some old threads. I get that tweets aren’t archived past 3,200. But by any chance, can you find other methods to helping me track old tweets. Also, if a developer or twitter staff member is reading this can you help me find my first tweet? Here’s the link to my profile: http://twitter.com/milionare/
