The President of the United States is following me on Twitter.
No, not that president.
The Massachusetts Historical Society has made Twitter a teaching tool by putting up the short-form diaries of President John Quincy Adams, the sixth President of the United States and pre-Twitterer. Turns out he kept a ton of diaries, and some of them feature short, abbreviated entries that look shockingly like modern Twitter posts.
I got an e-mail today that said Adams had kindly reciprocated:
"John Quincy Adams is following you on Twitter!"
