If Twitter was around in the 60’s

Sometimes I like it when my kids get really cool homework assignments.  Because I feel like I never had any “cool” homework assignments.  Of course I figure they don’t see their assignments as cool — just homework.  My son was assigned to make a social media page for a historical figure.  He had some restrictions that I haven’t imposed myself.  So I picked my favorite historical figure, Jacqueline Kennedy.  Why is she my favorite?  I think it’s because she was quiet and reserved and never seeking to be in the spotlight even when she was thrust into it.  So this is my interpretation of what her twitter page would have looked like (if twitter were available in the 60’s) right before the January 20th inauguration of JFK.  (PS — World History teachers this takes more than an hour and a half as suggested!!  Or maybe it took longer because I’m old – I don’t know).
