One of the great parts of creating content online is seeing what people — true history buffs and/or humor fans — do with it.  Retweets, submitted photoshopped tweets, and Tweets in the Blank — we love seeing where this goes.

A few weeks back, an HT fan created a game — History Never Retweets — at Sporcle.com (a site that lets people create their own trivia games), and a few days later, over 60,000 people had played it.

Today, we heard he’s made another — and Sporcle is featuring it on their home page.

So put your history buff wisdom and funny bone wit to the test: go play History DOES Retweet.

Social media enthusiast and Brit-nadian Dave Fleet reviewed our book Historical Tweets yesterday, and had this to say:

I’ve shown Historical Tweets to numerous people now, and every one of them has found different things to laugh at. That’s a winner in my book.

I’ve enjoyed every moment of reading it so far, and will likely continue to do so for a while.

Great coffee table reading for geek-filled households.
