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

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!’
