We value your support now more than ever.

All year we’ve been covering the issues that matter most to you—the pandemic, the election, policing, housing, and more—and now our end of year membership campaign is here. Will you support our work to ensure we can bring you the same informative local reporting in 2021?

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m going to start following John Quincy Adams on Twitter (@JQAdams). I mean, just out of common courtesy. The guy’s been dead for a really long time and he’s sending out tweets!

The whole twittering from the grave thing got folks over at AppScout thinking, to this end: Check out the site’s “Six Dead People I’d Follow on Twitter” list. Among those who made the cut: Ludwig van Beethoven, Andy Kaufman, Dorothy Parker, the physicist Richard Feynman, Charlie Chaplin, and Abe Lincoln.

A few folks also suggested Jesus.

Also: Yes, Twitter is down. The world is probably ending.
