How Did We Get Here The History of Bitcoin Told Through Tweets
Bitcoin is the world's first decentralized digital currency that operates without any central authority or intermediary. It was created in 2009 by an anonymous person or group using the name Satoshi Nakamoto. Since then, it has grown to become one of the most influential and controversial innovations in the history of money and technology.
But how did we get here How did Bitcoin evolve from a mysterious idea to a global phenomenon that has captured the attention of millions of people, governments, businesses, and media outlets One way to trace the history of Bitcoin is through the tweets of its creators, supporters, critics, and observers. In this article, we will look at some of the most memorable and significant tweets that have shaped the story of Bitcoin over the years.
The Genesis Tweet
The first tweet that mentioned Bitcoin was posted on January 3, 2009 by Hal Finney, a computer scientist and early Bitcoin enthusiast who would later become one of the first recipients of Bitcoin transactions. He tweeted:
Hal Finney (@halfin) January 3, 2009
This simple tweet marked the beginning of a new era in the history of money and technology. It was also the day that the first block of Bitcoin transactions, known as the genesis block, was mined by Satoshi Nakamoto. The genesis block contained a hidden message that read: \"The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks\". This was a reference to a headline from The Times newspaper that highlighted the economic turmoil and financial crisis that Bitcoin was born into.
The Pizza Tweet
The next tweet that made history was posted on May 18, 2010 by Laszlo Hanyecz, a programmer and early Bitcoin adopter who wanted to buy pizza with Bitcoin. He tweeted:
I'll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas.. like maybe 2 large ones so I have some left over for the next day. I like having left over pizza to nibble on later. You can make the pizza yourself and bring it to my house or order it for me from a delivery place, but what I'm aiming for is getting food delivered in exchange for bitcoins where I don't have to order or prepare it myself, kind of like ordering a 'breakfast platter' at a hotel or something, they just bring you something to eat and you're happy!

This tweet sparked a lot of interest and curiosity in the Bitcoin community and beyond. It was also the first documented instance of someone using Bitcoin to buy something in the real world. A few days later, on May 22, 2010, Hanyecz announced that he had successfully traded 10,000 bitcoins for two pizzas from Papa John's. He posted a picture of his pizzas and thanked a user named jercos who agreed to accept his bitcoins and order the pizzas for him. He tweeted:
I just want to report that I successfully traded 10,000 bitcoins for pizza. Thanks jercos!

This tweet marked the first known Bitcoin transaction for goods and services. It also became one of the most famous and expensive pizzas in history. At the time of the transaction, 10,000 bitcoins were worth about $41. Today, they are worth over $600 million. May 22 is now celebrated as Bitcoin Pizza Day by Bitcoin enthusiasts around the world.
The WikiLeaks Tweet
The third tweet that changed the course of Bitcoin history was posted on December 5, 2010 by Satoshi Nakamoto himself. He tweeted:
