Do You Remember What These Celebrities' First Tweets Were About?
Happy 12th birthday, Twitter!
(SPOT.ph) It's honestly hard to think of a time before we were all scrolling through Twitter. Where did people rant about random things? How did people talk about and post photos of funny things that happened to them? And of course, how did we know what our favorite celebs were up to? It's amazing to think that we feel a little bit closer to these superstars through 140—now 280—characters. And to celebrate Twitter's 12th birthday today, March 21, we round up the first-ever tweets of the most-followed Pinoy celebs.
