Sharks First Tweet Rankings

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

First impressions mean a lot. This includes Twitter, where the first tweet is immortalized in perpetuity. For example, here is the first tweet from @SanJoseSharks:

Embed - Twitter: Tweet from @SanJoseSharks: Welcome to the Official Twitter Page of the San Jose Sharks. More info on the Twitter feed on the Sharks site soon. http://sharks.nhl.com.

It's no different for Sharks players. Which means it's time to rank the first tweets from the eleven different Sharks players who post on Twitter.

Note: excluded first tweets that were replies/retweets.

11. Dylan DeMelo

Tweet from @ddems2: got twitter for the boys @matthews019 @jgarrett94

On one hand, it's nice to give friends a shoutout. On the other hand, this is a bland first tweet.

10. Mikkel Boedker

Tweet from @Mikkelboedker: Going back to Arizona tomorrow. Excited.

It's always good to be excited to go back to work (even if it was the Coyotes).

9. Brenden Dillon

Tweet from @BDillon04: Jshore with the Roomie Tonight!

Jersey Shore? Come on, Brenden. 

8. Aaron Dell

Tweet from @ADell32: let's get 2 more points tomorrow and go home

Getting those two points should be the first thought for everyone. 

7. Chris Tierney

Tweet from @tierney71: Whats up twitter world, first tweet ever! been a member since july though.......#yikes

Negative points for waiting four months to tweet. Positive points for admitting his mistake. #yikes

6. Logan Couture

Tweet from @Logancouture: Brett Favre and Lil wayne buddies....really?

We can't believe it either, Logan.

5. Joel Ward

Tweet from @JRandalWard42: Sorry for the delay everyone appreciate the support. So allow me to re-introduce myself, my name is Joel.. -HOV

Dropping Jay-Z lyrics in your first tweet is an easy way to put yourself in the top five.

4. Brent Burns

Tweet from @Burnzie88: What's up guys!! Starting up this twitter world, figure moving across country ain't crazy enough!!

Get traded to the Sharks, start a Twitter account. Pretty good reason to start one. 

3. Joe Pavelski

Tweet from @jpav8: Hey Twitter. Might need help from @Burnzie88 & @SanJoseSharks to figure this out.

The first tweet is everything you'd expect from the Captain: salutation, while acknowledging fellow tweeters. But the second tweet… Let's just say Pavelski would have weaseled his way to the top spot too if that was his first tweet.

Tweet from @jpav8: Feels good to finally weasel my way onto Twitter

2. Tomas Hertl

 Tweet from @TomasHertl48: San Jose Sharks

Tomas Hertl.

1. Marc-Edouard Vlasic

Tweet from @Vlasic44: pic.twitter.com/kSTXUSo9qg

You can't do much better than that.
