History, Live on Twitter


One of my favorite unconventional uses of Twitter is reading history tweeted real time. Here are two accounts I like. Know of others? Let me know and I'll do a follow-up.

@Kennedy1960: Follow John F. Kennedy on the presidential campaign trail in 1960. This is a project of the Kennedy Library; tweets are based on schedules and diaries in their archives.

@UKWarCabinet: As they say in their bio: "Watch WWII unfold day by day through original Cabinet Papers from 1940 held at The National Archives." You can learn more about the Cabinet Papers here. (Thanks to Liz for telling me about this one!)
