Hatching on Twitter

Thursday, 03.20.2014 / 3:37 PM

To celebrate their eight-year anniversary, Twitter is giving people the ability to discover their first-ever tweet. We gathered some of the Ducks' first tweets (although a few of them were just retweets or replies) and posted them below. We also asked our fans to show us their first ones if they were Ducks-related.

Apparently Ben Lovejoy was dealing with an imposter...

I'm in the twitter game to clear my name. @benlovejoy6 isn't nearly witty enough to be the real Ben.

Cam Fowler actually re-joined Twitter with his current handle, and used his first tweet back to chirp a (now former) teammate...

@SKEleven said the Ducks were the reason she joined Twitter in the first place...

@ducksfan713 kicked things off with a good old-fashioned chirping of a Sharks fan

@sharkie24 why do you guys get so amped up over a preseason game?maybe because you won't choke in the preseason?

And the first tweet for famous Ducks fan @LadyTennisBall was apparently a reply to me...

@AdamJBrady a few extra TV's around the house to watch sports (mostly hockey) are always a good idea!! Definitely not a ridiculous idea!
