The superstar joined Twitter exactly 10 years ago today.
On April 22, 2009, Ariana Grande issued her first-ever tweet. “Finally got a twitter and is so excited to start tweeting,” the budding pop star tweeted along with an old-fashioned smiling emoticon made up of a colon and a bracket.
In the years since, Ariana has risen from child star to Coachella headliner, eclipsing the pop-culture landscape as the biggest and brightest pop star of 2019. Her social audience has grown to more than 62 million followers on Twitter, thanks to her brand of unfiltered honesty and regular engagement with her passionate army of Arianators, who hang on her every reply, retweet and stream-of-consciousness tangent.
In honor of Ari’s 10-year Twitterversary, Billboard has rounded up a collection of some of her most unforgettable tweets — from her 2009 dreams about a certain Jonas Brother to the moment she coined “thank u, next.”
