DENVER - You guys, the city of Denver is now on Twitter, which would be really exciting news if it was 2007.
Ten years later it's more like - really? How has the city of Denver not been on Twitter before now?
The #FirstTweet simply said: "Good Afternoon, Denver. The City and County of Denver is now on Twitter."
Good Afternoon, Denver! The City and County of Denver is now on Twitter. #firsttweet— City of Denver (@CityofDenver) May 8, 2017
You'll forgive us for just now noticing this tweet from Monday, because it took Denver a decade to realize Twitter isn't a fad.
Also, to be fair, while Twitter started in 2006, it does seem that 2009 was really its time. It was the year that launched Wendy's (king of Twitter, giver of nuggs), President Trump (it doesn't seem he was running his own Twitter account back then), Sesame Street (can you tell Denver how to get to Twitter?) and one Kyle Clark (we all know how that turned out).
Welcome all of our Wendy's fans to our new page!— Wendy's (@Wendys) July 27, 2009
Be sure to tune in and watch Donald Trump on Late Night with David Letterman as he presents the Top Ten List tonight!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 4, 2009
EL: Hi everybody! It’s Elmo! Coming to you from Twitter!! YEAH, baby!— Sesame Street (@sesamestreet) November 3, 2009
Please bear with.. just gave in to the urge to join Twitter...— Kyle Clark (@KyleClark) June 30, 2009
(To add further context, 2009 was the year Avatar was released, Jersey Shore was a thing people watched on TV, Kanye interrupted Taylor, President Obama was sworn in, and Michael Jackson died.)
Follow the city. Give them the business, and welcome Denver to Twitter. Their handle is City of Denver.
So far, this account seems like a legitimate City of Denver account, even though we can't say the same for the Instagram.
