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.
