Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
Someone over at Flavorwire has commemorated Twitter’s eighth birthday the other day with a list of first tweets by twenty-five popular writers. I confess to not knowing half of them, but I am a hermit so my knowledge of the outside world is limited. Still, it’s nice to know that the first thing Gary Shteyngart said was, “hi, i’m gary shteyngart, a furry 39-year-old immigrant man trapped in a young dachshund’s body. LOVE ME!!!!!!!!!!!”
Skimming the list will give you minutes of pleasure.
More intriguing is this site, which finds the first tweet of anyone you want, if you know their Twitter handle. My first tweet?
Wow, I think Schopenhauer was right: “Compassion is the basis of morality.”
What a pompous ass!
