World War II's Twitter Feed

From Time NewsFeed:

Well, history buffs, it’s time to rejoice. A 24-year-old graduate student at Oxford has embarked on a new historical project that mixes social media and historical research. Alwyn Collinson will be spending the next six years chronicling the day-by-day events of World War II.

Under the handle @RealTimeWWII, Collinson began tweeting on August 31, which, 72 years ago, was the eve of Germany’s invasion of Poland. Since then, he’s been updating the timeline to reflect the events of the second World War up to the hour, sometimes sending as many as 40 tweets a day.

As I write this, Collinson has just posted a translation of a leaked report detailing German military secrets.
