In celebration of the 8th birthday of Twitter, the popular social media platform has launched a new tool that makes it easy to find the first tweet that a specific user ever posted. While almost entirely insignificant, I still thought it might be fun to take a look at the first tweets sent by Star Wars related Twitter users. For the heck of it I have compiled my valuable research here.
My IQ and my weight are comparable. I'm going to work out. Have a nice day.

3-2-1 Starwars.com Twitter blast off!
— Star Wars (@starwars) February 4, 2009
After analyzing this data, I think we have learned a few important things.
- The official Star Wars account has the oldest tweet in this list, barely beating Leland Chee. It's only right.
- The best first tweet award goes to Dee Bradley Baker. "Gonna make the pancakes" is my new favorite quote.
- Matthew Wood (General Grievous) is a fan of U2.
What's next for Star Wars Twitter? We can only hope that 2014 gives us the first tweets from J.J. Abrams and George Lucas.
