On Sunday, the first tweets from the first day of the first public outbreak of Zika virus were sent by the first U.S. Twitter user.
In the first tweet, a man in Texas called out his Twitter handle, @mikehugh.
That tweet came at 11:37 p.m. local time (7:37 a.m., ET).
At 11:38 p.o.m, that same man tweeted the hashtag #MikeHugh to express his shock and disbelief at the viral outbreak, and then he tweeted out a series of other tweets to express frustration and frustration over the crisis, and also a photo of a man with a mask, presumably the man in the mask.
The Twitter user, who asked to be identified only as @MikeHugh, then added a photo with the hashtag, #MileHigh.
That Twitter user was tweeting from a Dallas apartment complex.
His Twitter handle was @hughmike, a reference to the movie Mile High on the Hill.
He posted a photo on Twitter of himself wearing the mask he had been wearing the day before, and posted another tweet about the crisis on Saturday.
On Monday, he was tweeting again, this time with a photo he had taken that day with his wife and their two young children, and a hashtag that read #MilesHigh.
By the time @haughworried at 7:40 p.s.m (5:40 a.u.m.), his Twitter account had more than 1.7 million followers.
@haughey The first tweet came just before 11:43 p.t.
(6:43 a.v.t.) on Monday.
@MileHugh had tweeted out the hashtag for several hours, with the first two tweets being the first and last tweets of the day.
@Hughmikes tweets were followed by more tweets from @houghworries and @huggys tweets.
@Mike Hugh tweeted at 11 p.c.
(10 p.i.s.) and was followed by a number of tweets from people asking for help, including @Huggys family, @Haughmikes children, @hutchy, @Mikey_G, @Mike_Hugh.
The hashtag #mikey_hugh came next.
That morning, HUGH tweeted that he had just been told that a man from Florida had been diagnosed with the Zika strain.
HUGH: I was just told that he has a fever and will be out of the hospital for two weeks.
@mickhughhue This tweet was followed shortly thereafter by a tweet from @michael_hughes son, who had just left his hospital room and was tweeting about how he was feeling OK.
@michele_huggins, mom of @mikethenhuggens son, said she was not sure if she had ever seen him this happy.
HUGGINS: He has been going to the hospital every day for the past few days.
@MichaelHuggins @Mike_Huggens @michelahughes @mickehuggers @HUGHHUGGINES: He is still getting through the flu.
@MicheleHugginas family told me that @mikes wife was sick for a while, so @milehugh was at the hospital.
HUTCH: She is still recovering.
The tweet was accompanied by another tweet from Michael Huggins daughter, who was tweeting in a different tweet, saying that her mom was still in the hospital, and that she had a little boy who was at a birthday party.
HOGGINS (to her daughter): He is doing great.
HUFF: That tweet was retweeted by Michael HUGGs son, @Michaelhuggs, who said his mother was doing great and that he would be home soon.
Huggin’s tweets were accompanied by a photo from the hospital where his mother had been hospitalized, and another tweet to a family member, who is also a patient at the University of Texas Medical Branch, about how good she was doing and how she was going to be OK.
He later added another tweet, to another family member: My mom is in ICU.
I think she is doing well.
HUFGH: She has been to the emergency room.
HUHAG: She’s doing great, I am going to keep a close eye on her.
HAG: I know she will be OK and we will all be praying for her.
@daveyhutchys tweets came after the first official tweets from Texas.
@D_Hutchys, the father of @davidhutchins son, sent out his own tweet that morning.
HUKES: My husband just called me at 7 pm
