Happy Birthday Twitter! Looking Back At Our Employees’ First Tweets

In honor of Twitter’s 8th birthday today, March 21st, 2014, the popular social media company is getting just a little bit nostalgic.

While Twitter itself may spending it’s birthday looking back at all of the amazing changes and growth that has occurred within their company over the last few years, they are also inviting Twitter users to get in on the fun by looking back on their own past and revisiting their first Tweets.

With more than 500 million Tweets now being sent each and every day by nearly 240 million active Twitter users, it’s fun to take a look back and see the personal Tweets that kicked off our own Twitter journeys. (Hopefully they’re not TOO embarrassing!) To jump in on the Twitter fun, and in honor of Twitter’s 8th birthday, today we are looking back at our own employees’ first Tweets at The Zen Media Group:

Shama Hyder, CEO


Arshil Kabani, Vice President


Idan Shnall, Vice President of Search Engine Marketing


Michelle Anderson, SEM Strategist 


Deanna Ayres, SEM Strategist and Outreach Supervisor


Katie Herum, Vice President of Social Media Marketing


Adam Blue, Social Media Strategist
