The early birds got the lowest Twitter ID numbers


Who knew there was even such a thing as a Twitter ID number?

Turns out that everyone with a Twitter account has one, assigned when you open your account.

They run numerically: founder Jack Dorsey aka @jack has #12 (top).

I joined in November of 2006 — before SXSW in the spring of 2007 when Twitter blew up — and was assigned #22153 (below).


I only learned of the existence of these numbers yesterday when Nathan Baschez aka @nbashaw, #1742947 (below),


wrote about them somewhere.



can too!
