Top 10 Things I Learned from
TwHistory
1. There was a girl who really would stand at the bow of the
Titanic after her nightly escapades.
2. Fort Bridger was just a couple small log cabins.
3. No one really won the Battle of Gettysburg.
4. Never leave the percussion cap on the hammer of your rifle.
5. If you don't burn towns as you march through them, the
ladies treat you nicely.
6. Don't tie up the president’ horse within rope's distance of a
sinkhole.
7. If you're considering deserting the army, be prepared to dig
your own grave and then be shot in it.
8. Only 3 of the 4 smokestacks on the Titanic were real; the last
one was decoration.
9. The best time to raid the enemy's camp is just when they're
sitting down to dinner.
10. History can be fun and interesting.

  • 17. Top 10 Things I Learned from TwHistory 1. There was a girl who really would stand at the bow of the Titanic after her nightly escapades. 2. Fort Bridger was just a couple small log cabins. 3. No one really won the Battle of Gettysburg. 4. Never leave the percussion cap on the hammer of your rifle. 5. If you don't burn towns as you march through them, the ladies treat you nicely. 6. Don't tie up the president’ horse within rope's distance of a sinkhole. 7. If you're considering deserting the army, be prepared to dig your own grave and then be shot in it. 8. Only 3 of the 4 smokestacks on the Titanic were real; the last one was decoration. 9. The best time to raid the enemy's camp is just when they're sitting down to dinner. 10. History can be fun and interesting.

Editor's Notes

  1. Single-button Follow – This functionality will allow learners to follow all of the historical figures by clicking one button, rather than follow each individual one at a time.-- We've created the concept of a 'broadcast' which makes running multiple historical re-enactments simple and let's users follow/unfollow a single account.Character Management – This functionality will allow learners to create and keep track of multiple accounts on Twitter.-- We've added character functionality including the ability to add name, bio and photo. Each character is linked to a Twitter account. Updating the character's information on the website updates their information and url on Twitter.Timed Tweets – This functionality will allow users to enter tweets for various characters, and have those tweets broadcast on a specific date and at a specific time.-- This is part of our broadcast functionality which let's users run a re-enactment via retweeting events from the figures involved.Spreadsheet Upload – Learners can populate a spreadsheet with date, time, tweets, and character, and then upload the file to our site. TwHistory would then take that information and populate the data into our Timed Tweet system-- Uploading a csv file into a re-enactment will generate all characters and tweets in the file. The re-enactment can then be scheduled for multiple broadcasts.
