Paul Pierce, Ryan Lochte Among Best Of Athletes’ Very First Tweets

by

Twitter turned 8 years old Thursday, and what better way to celebrate than with the first tweets of some high-profile athletes?

Twitter is allowing users to look back on their very first tweets. The catch is that many of these tweets are embarrassing, because nobody fully understood how Twitter would be used yet.

While some athletes’ first tweets were shameless self-promotion, others tweeted a description of what they had for lunch.

Check out some of the best first tweets from the professional athlete community below.
