Twitter are now indexing all tweets ever published, and yes, that means all the way back to 2006! You know what that means right? You guessed it! We get to take a sneaky look at the first tweets ever published that mention our very own Southend, and we can even compare them to those of 2013 to see how much the Southend Twitter community has grown and changed. How exciting!
After years of aspiring to do so, twitter and their army of computer whizzes have finally made all tweets ever posted available to find. You can find out more about how they did that here, but in the mean time let’s take a look at the first 10 tweets to ever mention Southend…
