If you are a fan of TwHistory you may have already heard the news. We have developed a new site to make creating and sharing TwHistory reenactments easier than ever. Check it out at http://beta.twhistory.org.
We shared it at the Open Education conference as well as Mozilla’s Drumbeat Festival this week in Barcelona. We would love to have your feedback on the new beta so we can keep making TwHistory better. Thanks!
Our presentation is also available: http://slidesha.re/twhistory-opened10
We invite you to come create your own Twitter reenactment. Two that have just been added include the History of the Internet and Titanic Tweets (100th Anniversary Edition), which will launch (and sink) April 2012.
PatriotCast is an eight-year online reenactment of the American Revolution via Twitter. Created by TwHistory partner Jason Phelan, PatriotCast follows the events of the war in real-time, including Paul Revere’s famous ride tonight and tomorrow’s events at Lexington and Concord. These important moments mark the beginning of the war and the first major events broadcast via @PatriotCast on Twitter. It is also a great way to celebrate Patriot’s Day! PatriotCast follower ehartmanrealtor says: “Your project is probably the best use of twitter so far. I’m really enjoying it.” For more information visit the PatriotCast blog or start following it directly on Twitter. PatriotCast is listed in the TwHistory reenactment directory. If you are organizing a historical reenactment on Twitter and would like to be listed in the TwHistory directory, please contact us.
