Twitter has a new feature: You can easily look up any user's first tweet. We've come a long way since we joined twitter. Our first tweet—yes, us, Complex Sneakers—was about Penny Hardaway, but what about the rest of the sneaker scene?
We looked up people who run social media accounts, are sneaker celebrities, and those who design limited edition sneakers we all thirst over, just to see how we used to get down on social media. And here they are. Enjoy.
