Favorite Historical Tweeps
Posted by Diane

Twitter has tons of historical trivia to offer. These are some of the fun-to-follow history tweeps I’ve been enjoying (click Comments below to share your favorites):

PatriotCast
This online reenactment of the American Revolution will tweet a day-by-day account of the war for eight years.

Tweets of Old
Funny tidbits from old newspapers “attempt to reveal the lives of our predecessors through the tweets of yesteryear.”

Timelines
Get “today in history” tweets every day, such as this from July 7: “Houdini performed overboard box trick 1st time today in 1912 in East River”

American History Fun Facts
Follow for history trivia, quotes, fun facts and stories from American history.

Historical Tweets
Humorous Twitter messages from the history books, or, what famous people from history might have tweeted. From Johannes Gutenberg on Oct. 3, 1439: “Finally finished invention. Disappointed to learn that no one can read.”

SecretDelegate
A secret delegate to the Constitutional Convention of 1787 reports on the events through Twitter: “7/25/1787: Convoluted proposal after proposal on how to elect the president. Make up your minds people!”

Mental Floss
Did you know that during the bitter Adams-Jefferson election of 1800, Martha Washington called Jefferson “one of the most detestable of mankind.” Get more off-the-wall trivia (not all of it historical) from the folks behind Mental Floss magazine.
