Celebrity moms’ first tweets: Twitter turns 8

Mar 21, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. ET

Happy birthday, Twitter. The social media site celebrated its eighth birthday yesterday — and what a long way we have come. To celebrate the occasion, we have rounded up some of our celebrity moms’ first tweets from Twitter-obsessed moms including Kim Kardashian, Rachel Zoe, Jessica Simpson, Gwyneth Paltrow and more.

Before celebrity moms like Kim Kardashian had over 20 million followers and we started speaking hashtag like it’s a new language, Twitter was just starting out. Check out the very first tweets of some of our favorite celebrity moms.
