If you already get Samuel Pepys’ twitters then you should close this window or hit the back button now. If you read his daily diary but don’t get his twitters, I’ll just say this: now might be the time to start. Now you can leave this page too. That’s all I’m saying. There are SPOILERS ahead and there’s no need for you to read them.
No, really, I wouldn’t want to spoil anything for you, so look away.
Have they gone?
The rest of you… if you’re ever going to follow Samuel Pepys on Twitter then you should start before tomorrow. That’s Wednesday 2nd September 2009. Or Sunday 2nd September 1666… the day the Great Fire of London began, and Pepys will be “live tweeting” the event as it happened. It’ll be a busy day.
This is possibly the highlight of the whole nine-and-a-bit-years of the diary and Pepys will, of course, be giving a much fuller account at the end of each day in his diary, but I think the tweets of the event as it happened should be a lot of fun. Well, as fun as a disaster that destroyed 13,200 homes can be.
