Because you aren't already sick of everyone in your timeline sharing their first tweet (via, might as well drag 'em over here, too. Twitter opened up this site to celebrate their eighth birthday and because too many people have tweeted too many times for some of the classic sites like to be able to return a result.

As you might expect, as an early adopter not knowing what Twitter would become, nothing too exciting from me:

Reply to Cena asking what the Summerslam Team name should be when they go against the Nexus.

John Cena ✔ @JohnCena

CeNation. Ok I know I am opening myself up for the single biggest barrage of hate humor ever,but any thoughts on a team name for summerslam?

Bryan McKague @Tribal_Prophet

@JohnCena assumed it would be The CeNation Army, but Jericho's is catchy too. Can never go wrong with The Super-Friends either you know...

I was actually pretty excited when he mentioned The Super-Friends on the next RAW.

I joined Twitter solely to get help from Hilton regarding their last-second change to my reservations. Someone suggested I take to Twitter to ask my question publicly and potentially get a quick response. I did, and my questions were answered. I stuck with Twitter after that.

First one was a test, second one was a joke about never updating (and evidently pre-dates @-referencing), but the third one I get a real kick out of:
