It’s hard to believe given its popularity these days, but there was once a time when Twitter wasn’t so mainstream.
Not only were celebrities not on the networking site, many of those of were didn’t understand it.
Of course that has changed now, but we thought it would be good fun to go back through the annals of time to discover how celebrities first embraced Twitter with their first Tweet.
What we found was a mix of the confused, the funny, and the downright stupid!
