Best Twitter for a History Buff (2009)


Everyone seems to complain about Phoenix's lack of natives and abundance of out-of-state transplants. And though we love this city, that mix can lead to a shallow sense of history. What a shame. Prideful nostalgia is a crucial ingredient for a sense of place. But in our modern world, the Internet can give us anything we lack, and the tweeter @azhistory knows this. Add it to your Twitter list and you'll be treated to a healthy peppering of (what else?) AZ history. Through YouTube slideshows of old photographs, links to articles, and announcements of new books, you'll be an Arizona native in no time. Or, at least, you'll probably know more history than anyone really born here.
