John Quincy Adams Joins Twitter

This just in from Mashable: John Quincy Adams, the sixth President of the United States, has joined Twitter. He can be found at @jqadams_mhs.

This is a project of the Massachusetts Historical Society, and I think it’s pretty darned rad. According to Mashable:

His trials, tribulations, and top books will all be tweeted out. On top of that, the MHS will tweet out maps showing the location of President Adams during his trip to Russia while he was a diplomatic representative of the U.S.

It’s an interesting way to try and educate the masses, and I have already followed the account, but the MHS shouldn’t hold out hope that they’ll reach Generation Y this way—if that is indeed their goal, as Mashable suggests it is—because research has recently confirmed that teens don’t tweet.

What do you think? Will you be following President Adams?
