TOYS AND GAMES: Twitter Goes Way Back…

Twitter. Remember a world when feelings weren’t expressed in 140 characters or less? Apparently those days never really existed, at least that’s what I’ve discovered. After a little carbon dating and crackerjack reporting by yours truly, the following historical tweets were uncovered:

Sick of steak tartare! #MediumRarePlease @QuestforFire

–Cromagnum man

The unicorns are already on board… I think. #40Days&40Nights


Seriously, it’s got to be around here somewhere. #ComingtoAmerica

–Christopher Columbus, 1492

Undefeated and untied, about to kick major ass at Waterloo. #WeRNo1

–Napoleon, June 8, 1815

Aces and 8s, sweet! #DeadMansHand

–Wild Bill Hickok

Double-edged is more efficient. @AceHardware

–Lizzie Borden

Dogs and beers on me, boys. #PartyTillYouPuke @SultanofSwat

–Babe Ruth at the Chicago train station.

Wait until that lass from Amsterdam sees me get this baby up to full throttle. #PrideoftheAtlantic

— Titanic Capt. Edward Smith, shortly before 11 p.m. on April 14, 1912.
