Historical Tweets is a comedy Web site set up around the notion that Twitter has been around for centuries and this is an archive of what famous men and women tweeted. It features tweets from Lewis & Clark, Abraham Lincoln, General Custer, Martin Luther King Jr. and many more. Just like real posts on the microblogging service Twitter, these fake tweets are restricted to 140 characters. The brevity of the messages makes them all the more funny.
Historical Tweets was started in October 2008 by Alec McNayr and Alan Beard.
