Tweets of Old

I recently stumbled on the "Tweets of Old" Twitter account, and have been enjoying it immensely. Each tweet is a 14-character-or-less snip from late 19th century through early 20th century news publications. Says the editor: "We attempt to reveal the lives of our predecessors through the tweets of yesteryear: mostly one-line brevities from old newspapers, as they appeared—or close." (website here.)
