First Tweets: Memorable Debuts in Ohio State Twitter

By Jason Priestas on March 21, 2014 at 10:15a

Today is Twitter's 8th birthday and to celebrate, they launched a tool that lets you find the first tweet of any user of the service. Deadspin has already pointed out the crushing sadness of the Portland Trail Blazer's first tweet, so we thought it would be fun to see what we could dig up on the Ohio State (and 11W) front.

BTN starts things off with a bang.

Ohio State assistant coach Jeff Boals was focused.

A bit dry, but not a bad first tweet for the official Ohio State account.


Yes, you are.

It has been. Particularly when you switched over to the Ewok avi.

A very Brutus first tweet.

Kyle is making guarantees right out of the gate.

Maurice Wells, ladies and gentlemen.

DJ approached Twitter like he approaches everything else in life, with skepticism.

Ohio State would go on to lose to North Carolina in the 2K Sports Classic, but not before Evan Turner dropped 23 and 11 on the Tar Heels, helping the Buckeyes to a 49-point second half and a comeback that just fell short.

Jordan Hall gets right to the point.

Hope you're happy, one person!

Now this is how you start your Twitter career.

Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith dips a toe into the pool.

Going to go ahead and imagine Marcus is talking about a real submarine here.

Braxton Miller, folks.

This is why we love you, Tom Herman.

Was there any chance Chris Spielman's first tweet wasn't going to be classy?

We got you, Trey.

Mike Bennett with the first of many incredible tweets.

We're picturing ADV wearing his new school clothes and backpack, ready to depart for America.

We're disappointed in your lack of #hashtags, coach.

Meanwhile, Cris Carter crushes the #hashtag game with his debut.

Robert Smith asking the hard questions.

Finally, the rainmaker.
