The first tweets!

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Today is the 10th birthday of the social media (over) sharing site / program / app Twitter! Many of us are on it, including our very own Utah Jazz team, players, former players, and PR goons. So here are the first tweets from your favorites in Utah Jazz land:

Current Players:

Starting players Dante Exum, Rodney Hood (twitter gone!), Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors, and Rudy Gobert:

Bench group Shelvin Mack, Alec Burks, Joe Ingles, Trevor Booker, and Jeff Withey:

Somehow I am not authorized to view Alec Burks ' first tweet.

Deep bench of Raul Neto, Trey Burke, Chris Johnson, Trey Lyles, and Tibor Pleiss:

Most everyone either doesn't understand twitter, or perhaps are already on their 3rd account.

Former Players:

Actually, there are too many former players, so I'm skipping this part. If you have a specific guy in mind, tell me and I'll look up their first tweets. I will say that this guy started off so boring . . .

Retired Players:

A selection of some of our favorite or infamous players: Ron Boone, Mark Eaton, Karl Malone, Matt Harpring, Thurl Bailey, Mehmet Okur, Bryon Russell, Greg Ostertag, Blue Edwards, Stephen Howard, John Amaechi, Dee Brown, Antoine Carr, Quincy Lewis, Morris Almond, Tony Massenburg, Roger Powell Jr, Jarron Collins, and Dell Curry.
