If you're on Twitter, be sure to follow us this July as we tackle 400 years of American immigration history via 140 character tweets. Drawing on a timeline of immigration from JFK's A Nation of Immigrants, we'll share several tweets every day, starting from the beginning of the nation's history in the 17th century. In conjunction, we'll be posting longer explorations of this history on the blog, hopefully a few times a week. It'll be a great chance for our followers to learn more about America's immigrants, past and present, and hopefully engage each other on a variety of different topics.
You don't even need to have a Twitter account to read along - just find us at Twitter.com/tenementmuseum.
