Introducing Tweets of Yore!

One of the best things about Twitter is the ability to quickly share info from your life with a wide network of friends. Rather than just letting everyone know what you had for lunch - or were deciding to have for lunch, in extreme cases - you can share stuff you've learned, tell jokes and much more. I'm a fan of useless but funny bits of trivia myself:


But Twitter has only been around for a few years, and many of us have been around a lot longer than that. How great would it have been to have had access to Twittering during our most formative years?

Tweets of Yore is a partial response to that. To make use of this fun new tool all you need do is write up a suitable tweet covering something that's happened in the past and add the hashtag #yore at the end. Hashtags allow for related tweets to be grouped together when searching the vast Twittersphere.

To get started Historical Tweets has some great ideas. I especially liked William Shakespeare complaining about having to read Chaucer at a young age.
