Our friends at Nokia’s Ovi Blog made a few more Historical Tweets.  We love the design and visuals, but you said last week that you thought the product integration was a little strong…

So how about generating your own?  What message would you put in the Sacajawea image below?  Let the comments begin!

We’ll start it out:

“I know it doesn’t look like the Pacific Ocean, but we have time for some poker, right?”

“I’m lost.  Leading these chumps in circles so I have time to check Ovi Maps.”
(there’s some product integration + smirkable humor…)

“Just go down to that mountain range and make a left…. or is it a right?”

MarieX (Marie Curie): Foreign lab assistant keeps asking for “two more” every time we give him an x-ray. Give it a rest, man!

PS — When said by a non-native English speaker, “two more” might sound like “tumor” and visa versa.

Harriet Tubman doesn’t tweet that often… view her first tweet.

Conductor H. (Harriet Tubman): I’d tweet more, but Article 1, Section 2, Paragraph 3 limits me to 84 characters.

See: the Three-Fifths Compromise on Wikipedia.
