Cool Stuff: WWII Tweets from 1940

Every now and then, amidst the white noise of spam product offerings and onslaught of Kardashian news, something truly exciting comes out of Twitter. WWII Tweets from 1940 is an example of such an account. Updating “live” from the front lines, the handle puts forth fascinating clips of information from the current date’s happenings in 1940 alongside of vintage photos, all in 140 characters or less. Check out some of my recent favorites below and be sure to follow the account yourself. If anything, it provides excellent tidbits of historical information to make any tweeter sound smarter.

  • Belgian King Leopold just phoned monarchs of Holland & Luxembourg, saying “Beware of the flu”: code phrase for imminent German attack.  
  • British submarine HMS Starfish has attempted to attack a German ship in North Sea, but due to faulty drill, no torpedoes are actually fired.
  • French wigmakers report massive boom from US- Americans suspected to be hoarding wigs, wary of wartime shortage in hair from central Europe.
