The reality star and socialite tweeted Sunday to celebrate the 11th anniversary of the apparently monumental event, and included the groundbreaking photos themselves, which feature Hilton and friend Britney Spears.

Some of Hilton’s Twitter followers weren’t buying her claims, though, pointing to much older photos of Bill Nye, Madonna, George Harrison and others, all flipping their own bulky cameras around to take photos of themselves. One user even found “the first ever photograph selfie in history” from way back in 1839.
