Social Media Meets History - In Real Time

OK, now this is an interesting concept.  These folks are tweeting (and Facebooking) events from World War II in real time, as if this were 1940.  Most of their entries link to photographs or other documentary evidence of the event(s) in question.  Apparently, they plan to keep this up for the next 6 years...

This strikes me a fantastic teaching tool, as well as a "fun follow" for any history/military buff.  Check it out.
