I’m a history major—so I did a fakebook and a twister for Thomas Jefferson (@TJeff). I really like to think of historical figures in our terms, and that they maybe spoke a little similar to us today.

here’s the result:

Jefferson's Twitter

T.Jeff's Facebook

I took a screenshot of the result with jing, and then uploaded it to flickr. I also used Jefferson’s wikipedia page to really hone in on the information I wanted. I picked the day before the Declaration was turned in to portray Jeffy as a brilliant procrastinator. Really, there wasn’t much else. On the sites, they automatically find pictures of your subject.
