John Quincy Adams on Twitter!

There are some interesting Twitter pages out there! One good example is JQAdams_MHS, where you get one-line-a-day diary entries of John Quincy Adams, provided by The Massachusetts Historical Society. Well worth a daily visit!

On 27 June 1809, President James Madison appointed John Quincy Adams minister plenipotentiary to Russia. He left for St. Petersburg by ship on 5 August 1809. 200 years later the MHS started to tweet diary entries.

Last month I told about John Quincy Adams' short stay in Kristiansand, Norway on his way to St. Petersburg. Here are the tweets/diary entries:
