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.

    Kanye West and his Water Bottle Crisis

    Twitter just wouldn't be the same without some of @kanyewest's nutty ramblings. Like this Tweet, where he complains not about Persian rugs - but about water bottles. Specifically, having to "be responsible" for said water bottle. Total meltdown over a water bottle. Don't you have assistants who can take responsibility for your water bottles, Kanye?

    "I hate when I'm on a flight and I wake up with a water bottle next to me like oh great now I gotta be responsible for this water bottle."

    This Tweet earned Kanye "Best Tweet" honors at the 2011 O Music Awards, by the way.

    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

    Kanye West and his Persian Rugs

    Dear @kanyewest: Sometimes you kinda come off as a little kooky. Your personality is a bit over-the-top, especially on Twitter. Like with this Tweet, where you express concern about Persian rugs. Come ON dude really? Prior to this particular July 2010 Tweet, Kanye was obsessing about goblets. To be fair, he was in the middle of prepping a new music video "portrait" for the song "Power" (which yes, featured goblets, Persian rugs and the like). Maybe he needed the rug for the video?

    Here's the full Tweet:

    "I specifically ordered persian rugs with cherub imagery!!! What do I have to do to get a simple persian rug with cherub imagery uuuuugh"

    Charlie Sheen's First Tweet

    On March 1, 2011, Charlie Sheen (@charliesheen) decided he'd like to join Twitter. Sheen, of course, was in the middle of a (very public) meltdown - so what to do? Take it to the Twitterverse! Sheen's first Tweet featured a photo of himself and (former) 'goddess' Bree Olson, holding chocolate milk and Naked juice (how appropriate). The Warlock wrote:

    "Winning..! Choose your Vice..."

    He even included hashtags. Charlie quickly amassed millions of followers - and he remains ever active on Twitter to this day. Charlie's beloved goddesses might be gone, but his Twitter faithful remain.
