A couple months ago I was reading through Sylvia's diaries and was once again admiring her brief, but informative, sentences on her daily life in the early 1800's. To this Gen-Y'er, her short choppy sentences reminded me of tweets. As an avid user of Twitter, I wondered what it would be like to read her daily entries, one by one, in the form of a tweet.
So, I got in touch with my contact at the DAR Museum here in DC (the diaries were donated to the museum) and asked if I could tweet the daily entries from the transcripts that they had shared with me. I was given the all-clear a few months ago and am now tweeting away.
The best part is that since her diaries started in March of 1801, I have been able to tweet an almost daily account of from her life 210 years ago! So, come join in the adventure!
