    We are always so taken into the Internet world today that we never actually wonder how it all must have started. How did the first Facebook account, twitter or email look like? What were the first words that were written by their creators? When did they know that whatever it is that they have created actually works now? Have you ever wondered? Ah! You are wondering now! There are several internet firsts that most of us don’t know about. These mails, status update or tweets were actually a big step in the large virtual world fondly called the internet. These are iconic because they beckoned an age that changed the way we see technology forever. These internet firsts are probably traces of history for our generation today. These were mankind’s first shaky steps in the virtual world. These internet firsts are the living example of mankind’s progress and success.
