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.
@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!)

Why I Love Twitter, I
I honestly don't understand people who hate Twitter or who swear it's completely useless. I mean, if you don't want to use it, fine, your loss. But some people apparently feel the need to hold Twitter up as this completely useless thing, and - no. It isn't. Anyway, all that is by way of saying that this is the first of an occasional series of posts giving examples of the entertaining and/or useful aspects of Twitter.
Let's start with a silly one. The other night, a friend was swearing that the Conehead sundae at Friendly's was a wizard. His wife and I knew that it was obviously a clown, but he wouldn't budge. So she and I both asked @EatAtFriendlys, the official Friendly's Twitter account, for a ruling. And we were correct. Hah.
