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:
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
On one hand, it's nice to give friends a shoutout. On the other hand, this is a bland first tweet.
10. Mikkel Boedker
It's always good to be excited to go back to work (even if it was the Coyotes).
9. Brenden Dillon
Jersey Shore? Come on, Brenden.
8. Aaron Dell
Getting those two points should be the first thought for everyone.
7. Chris Tierney
Negative points for waiting four months to tweet. Positive points for admitting his mistake. #yikes
6. Logan Couture
We can't believe it either, Logan.
5. Joel Ward
Dropping Jay-Z lyrics in your first tweet is an easy way to put yourself in the top five.
4. Brent Burns
Get traded to the Sharks, start a Twitter account. Pretty good reason to start one.
3. Joe Pavelski
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.
2. Tomas Hertl
1. Marc-Edouard Vlasic
You can't do much better than that.
