John Quincy Adams is tweeting. The Massachusetts Historical Society has begun posting daily tweets from Adams’ diary that he began 200 years ago when he went to Russia as the first U.S. Minister. As a line-a-day diary it is perfect for Twitter.
The problem is letting Adams add you to his list of friends on Facebook. That leads to a barrage of friends like James Monroe asking you to join his friends. Andrew Jackson does nothing but ask you to duel while Martin Van Buren keeps asking if anyone remembers him.
However, the Sixth President can be annoying with endless messages like “NFW that I am going to lose to that P of S Jackson” or to constantly ask “121 was my dad really that grt?” By the time you are off his friend’s list, you are receiving daily ramblings from John C. Calhoun. (The tweets from William Henry Harrison were . . . well . . . short lived).
