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/
