Did you always wonder who was the first person to talk about Bitcoin on Twitter? Well, 99Bitcoins discovered this ancient treasure lying around.

Apparently, the user Halfin was the first person ever to include the expression ‘Bitcoin’ in a tweet. It happened back in January 10 of 2009, over four and a half years ago.

With the simple message “Running bitcoin”, Halfin got retweeted five times and was even praised by a fellow user.
