What a Tweet!
Jun 20, 2016
In this contest we want to hear what historical figures- both real and imaginary - would have Tweeted had Twitter been around.
Edit: By "historical" I mean anybody or any stereotype we would recognize that existed before Twitter was around. In more recent events, it would have to be somebody at the event that had to have passed away before Twitter came into existence. For example you could have a tweet from Jimi Hendrix about Woodstock, but not Joe Cocker.
Twitter started its existence in 2006.
Since this is a Tweet, there is a strict limit of 140 characters NOT including who the quote is from, ie:
[Up to 140 character tweet] + who said it and an optional when it was said.
You may use hashtags as part of your tweet
Looks like its back to Elba #waterloo -Napoleon
