Once upon a time, everybody was new to Twitter. The social media, microblogging platform celebrates its 10th anniversary today, and gave us the chance to see our first tweets, including those of our favorite basketball team.
In the beginning, not everybody knew how to "Twitter" or "tweet." As a result, everybody's old tweets look like Instagram photos from 68 weeks ago.
The Houston Rockets included.

Sam Dekker joined Twitter in 2009 but his first tweet is dated February 19, 2016. It looks like we have a mass deleter on our hands. What are you hiding, Sam?
