Historical Tweets: The Completely Unabridged and Ridiculously Brief History of the World

Historical Tweets: The Completely Unabridged and Ridiculously Brief History of the World

From their site:

In the history of history, nothing has been more historic than Historical Tweets.

Most people think Twitter was “created” in 2006.  These are same people who think Richard Gere created Buddhism in the 1990’s.  Just before Madonna created yoga.  Folks, like the sun, moon, and stars, Twitter has always been.  This site proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Books have been ruining history. So many unnecessary words.  Now, with Historical Tweets, history’s most amazing men and women can be fully understood, a mere 140 characters at a time.

Check back daily (or subscribe!) if you care at all about understanding history.

I just found this site today, and think it’s hilarious. They actually have a book coming out. Should be a real thigh-slapper for history fans.

I’ll shamelessly paste a few of my favorites from the site.

Lincoln Tweets

Noah Tweets

Hancock Tweets

Enjoy! I intend to make this site a regular on my sites-to-visit list. As with most sites, you can follow them on Twitter.
