Twitter has been growing phenomenally in the last year. Almost everyone who has an online presence is ‘tweeting’ away to glory! You may be following friends, family, your boss, Microsoft, Ashton Kutcher (if you’re not, you are one among very few on this planet!), or even the most recent celebrity introduced to Twitter – Ben Stiller.
However, your Twitter stream is going to be more interesting, even unusual, if you are following these guys!
The most unusual Twitter users:
Dead President John Quincy Adams! A high-school student browsing through this late American President’s diary realized that the entries resembled tweets. Now the Massachusetts Historical Society has started tweeting his diary entries since the 5th of August this year.
The US President in Office Barak Obama, the 44th US President, started tweeting from the White House after he took office in January of 2009. He tweets about decisions taken and other actions carried out by the government.
NASA Astronaut’s Tweets from Space Astronaut Michael Massimino tweeted the first Twitter updates while in orbit on 3rd April 2009. His final tweet on earth was “I’m going to put my spacesuit on, next stop: Earth Orbit!!”
World’s youngest Tweeter started tweeting from the Womb! Corey Menscher, an inventor, attached one of his devices to the belly of his wife when she was pregnant. The device automatically sends a tweet every time the baby kicks inside the womb! The child, Baby Tyler, was born in January of 2009 and holds the title of the youngest Twitter user!
World’s Oldest Twitter User! Ivy Bean, a 104 year old woman from UK, created waves when she started tweeting for the first time in 2009. Her first tweet was “I’m enjoying Twitter and having my photo taken — and I’m looking forward to Deal Or No Deal.”
StarvingAfricanChild this is a Twitter account that claims it has been created to show the “Biting social commentary illuminating the startling gap between the haves and the have nots.” The account, as well as the tweets, have been the subject of much controversy.
The Internet has been full of discussions on whether social media can outlive its creators – ‘What will happen to a Twitter account when the user dies?’ Well, this looks like a good solution – tweet from the grave. Why not, when you can tweet from the womb?!
