I keep telling family members I’ll send them the link for this, but finally figured out which link to send them, so here it is.
I think you can just click “Follow this list” instead of following the individual pioneer identities.
If I understand how this works, there are 13 writers who are using excerpts from old journals and writings to create “real-time” Tweets from the original 1847 Pioneer trek to the Salt Lake Valley. I’ve also been told that 2010 is on the same calendar (dates to days of the week) as 1847. I’ve been following this for a couple of months and it’s been fascinating–for example, a little while ago a lot of the pioneers had mountain fever, and a lot of my family and friends in 2010 had fevers, too. Also, it’s interesting to me that there’s still suspense even when you know the ultimate outcome.
