Cold War Studies is now tweeting the Cold War. I hope you’ll follow us: @coldwarstudies.
I have to admit that I borrowed the idea from a New York Times article called The Tweets of War: What’s Past is Postable.
Not everyone has time to read a blog post, but it’s easy to take just a minute to read a tweet. That’s why Cold War Studies is joining others who are tweeting politics and history: RealTimeWWII, JFK1962, CivilWarwp, and 1948War to name a few.
Please join me as I relive the Cold War snippet by snippet, tweet by tweet. There’ll be links to video, multimedia, and official sources.
I’ll continue to provide more in-depth information on the Cold War Studies blog (www.coldwarstudies.com) for those who like to dig deep. But if all you really want is an overview — without any academic gobbledygook — then @coldwarstudies will be just right for you. It’s your choice!!
We’ve just started — there are only 6 tweets so far — so you haven’t missed anything yet. But, if you’re interested in the causes of the Cold War, now’s the time to tune in.
Do follow us. And remember — we count on your retweets!
