First Tweets of the Biggest Photography Names on Twitter

firsttweet

In celebration of their 8th anniversary, Twitter has launched a tool that lets you look up the first tweet of any and every account on their service (that isn’t protected). We thought we’d put that tool to some photographic use and share what some of the biggest photography names on Twitter were sharing when they first hopped on the now-huge microblogging platform.

We’re gonna break it down into three categories: Our favorite publications, our favorite brands, and our favorite photographers.

We tried to be as extensive as we could, but it’s a near certainty that some important names slipped our minds. If you feel someone or some other company or brand should be included that wasn’t, drop us a line in the comments and we’ll add them to the list!

You can find out more about the tool on Twitter’s blog, or try it out for yourself by clicking here.
