Tweet Tuesday: First Tweets

September 27th, 2011 by Courtney Nasshorn

Welcome to the Hulu Blog’s Tweet Tuesday, a place where you can discover new people to follow, learn about what’s trending in the world around you, and laugh at interesting people you probably already laugh at already.

For Week One, we’ll be carrying the torch of the Hulu Blog’s “My First Time” Week, 140 characters at a time.  So here are some first ever tweets from our favorite personalities.

Do you remember your first tweet?  We’d love to hear it at #HuluFirstTweets! Oh, and follow us on Twitter, too. Our first Tweet was probably about Batman, but we’re too embarrassed to check.

 colbertreport: Hello Twitter! My, you’re looking swell. Did you lose weight since we’ve been away? Good thing we’re back tonight with all-new episodes! 2010-07-26 19:20:53

  charliesheen: Winning..! Choose your Vice…#winning #chooseyourvice http://twitpic.com/455ly9 2011-03-01 23:43:30

  @hulu: For more general winning!, watch Comedy Central’s Roast of Sheen.

 mindykaling: Oh shit I’m on twitter you guys. 2009-03-10 02:36:28

 @hulu: Watch Mindy give Jimmy Fallon shit for not following her on Twitter.

  SofiaVergara: Hola Twitter! 2009-11-24 21:23:27

  @hulu: Hola Sofia!

  aplusk: dropping my first tweet 2009-01-16 07:50:58

  @hulu: Speaking of Ashton dropping a tweet, check out his tooter idea, the first flatulence networking system.

  therealzooeyd: I hemmed. I hawed. I joined twitter. Alas. Reason? I saw “The Cove” this weekend and it blew my mind.Everyone should see this movie. -zd 2009-08-18 02:35:11

  @hulu: Agree with Zooey, great movie, here’s The Cove trailer.

  And the the winner for best Twintro: @SteveMartinToGo adrift.

@SteveMartinToGo: My publicist is nervous about my becoming a Tweeter. He says celebrities tend to make such monumental gaffes. He’s such a typical Wop!

@SteveMartinToGo: I would like to apologize for my previous Tweet. What I meant to say was that my publicist’s a Sammy, which means he’s a Samoan.

@SteveMartinToGo: I would like to cancel my previous apology. What am I if not a man?

@SteveMartinToGo: I would like to reinstate my first apology. It has been explained to me that I might never work again. Clearly, I am not a man.

@SteveMartinToGo: I would like to cancel my previous negation of my first apology.

@SteveMartinToGo: I would like to apologize to the people of certain parts of Manhattan, Italyville, but not Texas.

@SteveMartinToGo: I would like to apologize to the people of glorious Italy where I sometimes like to vacation. I love-a your spicy meat-a bolls!

@SteveMartinToGo: I’m actually part Italian, so I can make those jokes!

@SteveMartinToGo: I apologize for lying about being part Italian. I’m really Samoan.

  @Hulu: This reminds us: The Best of Steve Martin is better than the best of almost anybody else.
