Real Time WWII

The Twitter account @RealTimeWWII is live tweeting World War II on this day and time, from 1940 through 1946.

So for example, on March 23, 2012 the account tweeted this news from March 23, 1940…

Japan’s Foreign Minister has announced he is “certain” of a long-running European war, but that Japan will not “take sides.”

This has to be one of the most fascinating uses of Twitter I’ve ever seen. For more, follow @RealTimeWWII.
