htlibraryHear ye, hear ye…

For over a year, we’ve said that books have been ruining history, but today we’re happy to announce that we’re the exception to that rule.

We just signed a deal with Villard (part of the Random House Publishing Group), the publisher behind every great book in history.

Come April 2010, you’ll be able to find Historical Tweets at your local bookseller… so, you should probably start the line now.  We’re not kidding.  It’s going to be big.  Really big.  Bigger than Harry Potter and Twilight combined.

Thank you for your support, your pos-mens, and your retweeting.  You’ve made us very happy historians.

Finally, a big historical salute to our agent Kate McKean at Howard Morhaim for representing us.  You’re a champ.

Picasso: Just complimented a woman on her big head and weird ears. She was insulted. Must create visual style to justify myself.

Historical Tweets turned 1 this week.

What started out as a fan-boy response to Mad Men characters Twittering in mid-2008 has turned into a real web site with regular readers and contributors.  We’re so honored for the attention Historical Tweets has received.  Thank you, faithful Twitterstorians.

In honor of making history with Historical Tweets, here’s one from us, HT-co-founders/writers/historians Alec McNayr and Alan Beard:

Thanks again for your support.  If you haven’t seen them, check out the Tweets that started it all…

One small pitch, for all those trying to figure out the how their corporate marketing can benefit from online media.  Corporate social media is our specialty.  Historical Tweets went from zero to 4.5 million page views in one year… and we do this for clients, too.  If you’re interested in hearing more about the Historical Tweets story, or us as creators, send us an email. We’ll reply, and a conversation will ensue.  We promise, it will be historically entertaining.

Remember kids, those that don’t understand history are doomed to retweet it….

Alec & Alan
