All a-Twitter

Twitter is alive with tweets by the greats of Russian literature and history, who sometimes report on their lives as if in the past and at others offer biting commentary on current events. Among the more interesting tweets from the past are:


Tsar Nicholas II: An account that posts real diary entries by Russia’s last tsar, who was known for his brevity and lack of existential reflection. The person keeping the blog posts items on the same month and day as Nicholas’ original entries. Apparently, what the monarch loved most was walking outside, reading, and drinking tea.
