History Launches ‘JFK Twitter Takeover’ For 50th Anniversary of Assassination

Fifty years after President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, the ways the public shares information are vastly different. History is highlighting these changes by tweeting play-by-play accounts of Kennedy’s final days as it builds up to the shooting’s 50th anniversary on Friday.

The project, dubbed “JFK Twitter Takeover,” is on History’s official Twitter account, and features regular updates of the late president’s going-ons in the last week of his life. Today, for example, History tracks his campaign stops in Tampa while Secret Service and Dallas PD surveys possible motorcade routes for his ill-fated arrival.

There are also plenty of photos provided, as well as documents and articles accompanying the subject.

On Friday, along with tweeting the big event, History will air “JFK: The Definitive Guide” and “Lee Harvey Oswald: 48 Hours to Live.”

Meanwhile, starting Friday, CBS will stream their live, uncut coverage of the assassination, as it happened, on its website. The coverage will include the initial breaking news bulletins and extend through the Kennedy funeral.
