What is twitter but a conversation? and what is philosophy, art, dance, and the world of ideas, but a conversation over time between great minds? Mash up the two and you get a twitter feed across time, from Sappho to Gaga, and lots of interesting folks in between. Including Avicenna, Freud , and Faith Ringgold. Special thanks to Mike Wallace for the ambigram of ‘short shift’ for the Shakespeare icon. For you philosophy geeks, not Greeks, note Socrates was retweeted by Plato.
