We used a new Twitter tool to comb the site's archives for the first tweets the Magic's current players ever sent.
Twitter recently released a tool which makes it easy to find the first tweets its users have sent. We've saved you a few clicks by listing Orlando Magic players' first tweets in this space.
Most of their initial tweets simply express curiosity with or say hello to the site:
Dewayne Dedmon: "let me see whats up wit twitter" (7 February 2011)
Tobias Harris: "new 2 this website... its not bad lol" (17 March 2009)
Doron Lamb: "Finally on Twitter" (18 April 2011)
E'Twaun Moore: "This fool @pebobryson12 got me on twitter what's up twitter world!" (21 March 2011)
Andrew Nicholson: "finally on my twitter flow" (17 December 2011)
I took the same approach in my first missive:
Evan Dunlap: Let's put some lipstick on this pig. (7 December 2008)
A few other players treated the new site as though it were Facebook:
Maurice Harkless: "Layingdownn" (9 August 2009)
Jason Maxiell: "Look at this..look at this..look at this...it's a got dam cat drinking out the bowl lmao. @kevinhart" (9 September 2010)
Victor Oladipo: "is having a late night" (5 November 2009)
The Magic's new starting power forward offered a one-word reply to one of his followers:
Kyle O'Quinn: "@CCurran1986 thanks" (19 April 2013)
The team's official account, as well as that of its starting point guard, used the site for promotional purposes:
Magic: "Tickets still available for tomorrow vs the Pacers! http://tinyurl.com/bqynwr" (26 January 2009)
Jameer Nelson: "Support the Pete and Jameer Nelson Foundation night at the Sixers Game! On March 1, the 76ers will host Jameer Nelson and the Orlando Magic." (1 February 2010)
The Magic, incidentally, won both of those games.
