The Best Tweets of All Time

Some of the best tweets of all time feature - no surprise here - celebrities. What are the best tweets of all time? The best tweets ever may come from tech darlings (issuing the first-ever tweet), celebs having exestiential crises (we're looking at YOU, Kanye West) or having all-out battles with other celebs (hello, Ice T and Aimee Mann). But not all of the greatest Tweets (of all time) are from household names, oh no. Some of the most well-known Tweets have come from everyday people who just happen to be in the right place at the right time, smartphone in hand, as historic events unfolded.

What the best tweets of all time? Take a look here and you'll see some of the greatest ever.

Read on for more info about some of the best, most important (arguable, we know) Tweets ever. Don't see your favorite on the list? Add it! Definitely add it.
