    "Hmm... Can't find that first Tweet! Either that @username doesn't exist, or it's protected."

    Mine was poor... "Ok, Lets embrace the future!"

    I archive all my tweets - http://irte.eu/tweets - I use it to remind myself that everything online is forever.

    My account is protected (as should most people's here!) but looking back mine was simply "is about to hit the sack". 2009.

    Why so? Personally I think we should only post what we are willing to post in public. Protected tweets don't really offer any protection.

    You're quite right, but protecting an account means you have control over who sees what you post. I'm quite happy to be blunt on twitter just like I would be to my mates, but I also choose not to say certain things with people if there's someone else in earshot.

    My first tweet (2 1/2 years ago) was for the college where I work. I have yet to do a personal tweet, even though I've had an account for about three years. OneTweetTony is one up on me!

    Apparently, my band has a Twitter account, but none of us have ever used it.
