    That mustache will make you stand out in a crowd. So will spelling your name that way. Everybody else spells it “Adolf.”

    Ah Mark, you caught us with our proverbial pants down. It is indeed Adolf, not Adolph. Or perhaps @Adolf was taken?

    […] schön: Ice Cube, der am 23.002.1993 offensichtlich keinen guten Tag hatte. Oder Hitler – und wie im Januar 1923 alles begann. […]

    Look, if you’re going to do this, can you at least do it with some level of accuracy? This is sad and pathetic. I was going to use this site as an example on courses that I run, but if this is the best that you can do I’ll look elsewhere.

    No one said that these were accurate, just that they were complete and utter factual events that really happened on Twitter, written by the exact people that you see attributed, using the technology most people think was invented in the early 21st century. We know all about history, and the historical facts history is based on.

    Okay, okay, we admit that while this is a site that exhibits tweets that wouldn’t be appropriate to include in a classroom as fact, we do believe that it does contain tweets that students don’t think are boring.

    Boring never started a good conversation.

    Lets see this as a humorous account of how the world could have been…without getting into the details like dates and time and place. Appreciate the idea at least!

    Hell’s bells, y’all…it’s friggin’ funny. Isn’t THAT the point? Keep up the good work!

    I’m with Kate — chill the f*ck out history snobs! Loving this site!

    those who post comments regarding the inaccuracies of what you read are taking this site waaaaay seriously. ganja perhaps ?

    Huh? Tweets as historically accurate documents? Twitter would then be the news source for those that think grunting is too time consuming.

    It’s political satire…it’s funny…laugh!

    i take it at face value… it’s fun and it put a smile on my face.

    who cares a *tweet* if it’s historically inaccurate?

    yeah, I’m amazed that you spelled your name like that as well, “Adolph”.

    You wrote my great-grandmother a letter and signed it personally, thanking her for working for so many years in Germany, back in, I believe ’42-’43…give or take. My grandmother has the letter and has shown it to me a couple of times.

    You signed it “Adolf”…just curious…what’s the deal?

    Autism? Retardation? Judaism?

    but it is just LIMP

    Wow. Hitler. Hilarious. Keep ’em coming idiot.

  16. Twitter Historian responded on 17 Nov 2009 at 5:37 pm #

    Not sure you even read the tweet. If you dissect the humor a bit more closely, you’ll see that we’re calling Hitler a douchebag. But you’re right, that’s probably not far enough. We should have gone for double-douchebag status.

    haha I like this twitter historian guy. “Oh man you must think Hitler is awesome.” … idiots.

  18. HistorySnob responded on 06 Jan 2010 at 6:29 am #

    I, for one, love it. A little gaff at the start, but otherwise that made me laugh.

  19. RaulJones responded on 26 May 2010 at 6:00 am #

    They just don’t get it. Wonder what kind of “courses” Phil “runs”. Care to elaborate, Phil?

    @ Hitler– Just wait for the gas bill.
