Synopsis

Synopsis

OUTRAGEOUS HISTORICAL REVELATIONS IN FEWER THAN 140 CHARACTERS!
 
THEY TWEETED WHAAAATTT? History’s most famous personalities share their ridiculous, scandalous, and humorous thoughts. From the ancient tweets of @Plato and @Socrates to modern updates from @Napoleon, @Hitler, and @BabeRuth, Historical Tweets has all the answers to history’s biggest questions: What happened to the dragons? What does “four score” mean? WWJT? For those who can handle only 140 characters’ worth of history at a time (and don’t mind breaking their history teachers’ hearts), this is the perfect book.
 
@Kissinger Which button do I push to erase my last 18 and a half tweets?
