Find out ‘who tweeted something first’ – web tool

Recently found a useful little web tool to find out who tweeted something first.

You can search for a word, phrase, even a link or use Twitter search operators – see tips on search operators in Twitter and Tweetdeck here.

A handy tool for journalists, find the first mention of a breaking news story – likely a pretty good eyewitness.
