If you haven’t given Twitter a shot, you should. I must admit that I was pretty skeptical at first. Random strangers talking about random things. Is that interesting, really?
It turns out that it is.
You’ll find a boatload of historians, academics, writers, and otherwise fascinating folks sharing thoughts and links to some of the most intriguing news from the past. Once a week, I’ll post the links that I found tweet (or retweet) worthy.
And by the way, if you’re new to Twitter and want some help getting started, feel free to follow me @history_geek. Shoot me a DM (direct message) to say you found me via Wonders & Marvels. I’d be happy to introduce you around!
And if you happen to be into medieval history, you’re really in luck. Here’s a list of 60 tweeters for medievalists…good place to start for anyone interested in history, actually.
And for all you Twitters out there, be sure to leave your username in the COMMENTS. Tell us, too, what your experiences have been. Good, great, so-so, or not worth it?
