So you think Twitter’s modern? The Edwardian’s were doing it 100 years ago – using postcards instead of computers | Mail Online September 5, 2009

Loved this piece on Postcards, the Twitter of the Edwardian world 100 years ago.

I was amazed to learn that mail was delivered in up to 10 times per day in major cities. Almost the perfect number of Tweets per day, but the added advantage of some exercise going to the Post Office.

I’ll have to be content with posting this just once and letting Posterous (bless their hearts) automatically post it to this blog as well as my Twitter and Facebook.

Happy Posting!

Thanks to Laura Clark of MailOnline for this article.
