If you started on Twitter a long time ago, probably you don’t even remember your first tweet, but I am sure you want to know what it is. I did not remember my first tweet, but found my first tweet on Twitter made more than 6 years back, via Topsy.

3 settings are important while searching for older tweets on Topsy –

  1. What to search – We used from:qot in the Topsy search box to search for our Twitter @qot account. Replace qot with your Twitter ID.
  2. Sort by Oldest – this will give you your oldest tweets. By default tweets are sorted by relevance otherwise.
  3. Sort by All time – this will allow Topsy to search the oldest tweets goinf back to 2006! By default only last 7 days are selected.
