Presidential Election and Social Media in 1804

Social media has made it interesting (maybe a better word is disappointing) to see the information that flows between our country’s leaders, candidates, and the rest of the world.

After reading the twitter “battle” between Trump and Warren, it made me wonder if this type of interaction always went on?

I went through my Twitter archive, dating back to the Presidential Election of 1804 and found these tweets between Thomas Jefferson and Charles Pinkney.

So I guess the answer is Yes; this type of interaction has always gone on.

But I do wonder what types of devices they used back then to access Twitter😉.

This is a great but simple video of a dog eating spaghetti… I love the sounds.
