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.

    Ice T vs. Aimee Mann

    In April of 2010, rapper-turned-actor Ice T, aka @FINALLEVEL, went after musician Aimee Mann on Twitter in a big way. To be fair, she kinda started it. Mann called Ice T out after apparently watching an episode of 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,' Tweeting, "Christ, there is no reason in the world anyone should ever have cast Ice T in a television show." Just an observation/opinion on Mann's part, but Ice T was having none of it! He immediately took to his Twitter account with a message for Mann:

    "stop worrying bout my acting bitch, and worry about your WACK ass music. In the mean time.. Eat a hot bowl of Dicks! Ice T"

    Bronx Zoo Cobra Tweets Adventures

    The @BronxZoosCobra made headlines in March of 2011, after a 20-inch female Egyptian cobra went missing from the famed zoo. As the search for the missing reptile continued for six days, she popped up on Twitter! Within days, this Tweeting reptile, a real #snakeonthetown, had thousands of followers, eager to hear about all of her adventures in the city, including this Tweet about a trip for desert at a famed NYC establishment:

    "Enjoying a cupcake at Magnolia Bakery. This is going straight to my hips. Oh wait, I don't have hips. Yesssss."

    The Bronx Zoo Cobra also attracted an enemy on Twitter: the @BronxZookeeper!

    First Tweet From @jack

    The very first Tweet ever sent on Twitter came on March 21, 2006. Twitter creator Jack Dorsey (@jack) announced simply, "inviting coworkers." So there you go. Obviously this one, like many of the biggest and best (and, in this case, first) Tweets, was retweeted many, many times.

    Ellen's Oscar Tweet

    Oscar host Ellen Degeneres broke a Twitter record with this one. In March 2014, Ellen herded Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Angelina Jolie and others into the most legendary selfie to ever hit the Internet. The sheer number of A-listers packed into the shot apparently caused the social media platform to crash, leaving thousands of Twitter users locked out.

    Earthquakes and Pap Smears

    Twitter user Verdell Wilson, better known as @MissRFTC, took the opportunity to inform her many followers on July 29, 2008, that an earthquake hit at exactly the wrong time: while her doctor was um, giving her an exam. Her OB/GYN. Yeah, that kind of exam. Her Tweet:

    "I am totally serious. My My Ob/Gyn was IN my vagina and an earthquake started rattling the room!"

    Awkward. Think you have enough to worry about at the OB/GYN, ladies? Think again
