What was Twitter's first tweet?

What was the world's first tweet? That is the question.

Dorsey Spark Capital partner Bijan Sabet blogged that Monday was Twitter's fourth birthday and that co-founder Jack Dorsey's first tweet was: "inviting coworkers."

Blog commenters disagreed, saying it was: "setting up my twttr."

Influential technology blogger Marshall Kirkpatrick weighed in: "Hate to say it, but other blogs (The Next Web, Mashable) are posting 'setting up my twttr' with a timestamp 10 mins before this. Hmmm.... :) Ah history, I wish I knew what I was doing that day!"
