Sharks First Tweet Rankings

by Ann Frazier /

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.

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:

You can't do much better than that.
