That tweet came back to haunt Abraham Lincoln
The Washington Post has embarked upon an interesting enterprise – taking statements of Abraham Lincoln and reprinting them 150 years later – via Twitter.
For example, on November 1, 2011, @AbeLincolnWP tweeted this statement:
“The President is pleased to direct that Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan assume the command of the Army of the United States”
Of course, by 2014 @AbeLincolnWP will presumably be tweeting a different tune.
This project will presumably end in 2015. However, back in 2009, competitor TIME Magazine reprinted something from Historical Tweets, who jumped the gun:
Gr8 show tonite. Ford is the perfect venue for AAAAARRGH!!
