Someone’s had the clever idea of posting “tweets”  from  newspapers c. 1900.  Two examples:

  • Don’t light the fire with kerosene. Let the hired girl do it. She hasn’t any wife and children; you have.
    • Dr. Oechsli ran over a chicken with his automobile this week. The damages were seventy-seven cents which the doctor paid.

    They can be followed on Twitter, or read on the web site: http://tweetsofold.com/
