Rewind the clock to the stars' first Twitter moments as we celebrate a decade of tweeting mayhem...
For anyone that's been tweeting away happily for a while now - perhaps even since the very beginning - prepare to feel seriously old because Twitter just turned TEN YEARS OLD!
Yes, the social media giant - the site that now has an estimated 332 million active users - is one decade old this week, which is KINDA incredible when you think about.
In that time we've had breaking news coverage like NOTHING else was able to deliver, social faux pas' we'll probably never be able to live down and, of course, some SERIOUS Twitter rants from the world's most controversial celebrities.
Love this one from One Direction's Louis from 2010 - his first tweet was to say how much he LOVED 2009 X Factor star Lucie Jones! We're sure the feeling's mutual by now!
@luciejones1 you are an absolute babe ha . Fantastic voice my favourite from last year x— Louis Tomlinson (@Louis_Tomlinson) May 8, 2010
The 'Stay With me' star talking about a 'dirty' pic... hmmm, don't worry it's not what you think!
Sounds like not a lot's changed for Taylor in the past eight years then... Meredith's probably still mad!
apologizing to a very needy cat for being gone so long.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) December 6, 2008
Woah... flashback to 2009 for all you #Heartbeats out there for when Jessie was only JUST starting work on 'Who You Are'. Damnnnn!

Good god our Ellie was an emotional young thing back in 2009 by the sounds of it! Wonder if she has those tears under control now?
I wish I didn't spontaneously burst into tears in people's studios. Highly embarrassing for them— Ellie Goulding (@elliegoulding) May 27, 2009
Two things.... 1 - 2009 Calvin Harris needed to buy some deodorant. 2 - REMEMBER THE TING TINGS?!!

We never heard anything from Bruno's studio sessions with Far East Movement. But, maybe that's a good thing? ;)

We reckon there was a BIG response of desperate ladies messaging Adam Levine after this needy tweet...
Wow. My first solo tweet. It feels so lonely.— Adam Levine (@adamlevine) July 21, 2009
Those Maroon 5 boys sure kicked off their Twitter page with a bit of a moan didn't they?
My very first tweet? I'm sick. I have the chills. Loaded with homeopathic remedies. Send me positive vibes. Going to watch Lakers. -JV— Maroon 5 (@maroon5) June 12, 2009
Mother Monster's been tweeting since way back in 2008. And she was JUST as hilarious back then...
