Greentext threads are used as a way to share experiences related to the topic of the thread in concise, green-colored sentences.
Because of 4chan’s lack of a built-in archival system, the exact origin point is unknown.
But, through the threads that are archived on the separate website Chanarchive, we can see that the threads started to become popular in early-2010, with the first archived thread being an awkward moments thread started on March 3, 2010 on the /r9k/ board.
