When a visitor to the Massachusetts Historical Society noticed that the short entries in one of  the dairies written by John Quincy Adams were similiar to tweets posted on Twitter, that gave the historical society an idea–post the line-a-day entires to Twitter.

200 years ago, on 5 August 1809,  John Quincy Adams set sail to Russia to serve as the the first American ambassador.  The historical society intends to post the diary entries detailing the voyage and supplement with maps, photos and links to longer diary entries.

Hmmm, does posting the line-a-day entries constitute a RT?
