Welcome to TwHistory. We believe that history is filled with exciting stories. We also believe that these stories can be told through Twitter; through the people who lived and experienced them. We go through journals, diaries, letters, and other original sources to deliver the day-to-day lives of people who lived through some of histories most exciting times. We broadcast this information through Twitter, and feel this is a new and exciting approach to understanding history. Instead of reading about a month-long campaign in a few hours, you experience it over the course of a month in small 140 character ‘Tweets’.
The battle is over! Thank you for following the battle of Gettysburg. It has been an amazing two months. We hope to run the battle next year at the same time. If you are interested in following out other historical tweets (Cuban Missile Crisis, JFK Assassination, and more), be sure to follow @twhistory on twitter, and if you want to help out with future projects, please drop by our volunteer page, or join the discussion in our forum.
