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.
