We’re experiencing a lot of firsts here at TweetReports; first launch, first press coverage, first dance… and it got us thinking back to the days of yore — late 2008 — when our brand monitoring tool was just an idea when we posted our first Tweet. It got us wondering, besides us, what else have some of the world elite, nation’s biggest companies and most recognized brands said with their first tweet?
