Did you know that the Library of Congress has archived “every public tweet . . . since Twitter’s inception in March of 2006”?  Read about this project here.  This incredibly detailed archive of people’s daily lives will be fascinating to read in, say, 50 years.  For better or worse, social media tools like Twitter have given us the ability to connect with friends, family, and colleagues in ways like never before.  Technology has certainly transformed our modern lives.
