Most celebrities may be pro at the Twitter game now, but back in the stone-age years of 2007, 2008, and 2009, celebs were just beginning to create Twitter accounts as a means to personally reach out to fans and keep them updated on future roles, performances, and the like. Now, of course, it's a way for celebrities to post every single sometimes incoherent thought that crosses their minds, but...you know, it was a different, fascinating time back then.
While it doesn't seem worth the time or effort to scroll through any given celebrity's Twitter account in search of their first tweet from years ago, Twitter has made it easy for us to hop in a figurative DeLorean and be transported back to the yesteryear: In honor of their eigthth anniversary, they've debuted a feature called First Tweets, which allows users to type in the Twitter handle of any given member to see the first tweet they posted (assuming that their account isn't currently private).
It's a cool feature, and, of course, we took the opportunity to pull up the first tweets that a variety of celebrities and big Twitter personalities posted back in the day. And, surprisingly...they were all boring as hell. Hollywood let us down, guys—maybe we just expected too much.
Check out a few of the most boring of the boring tweets below:
