National Library tbreaktweets

If your wondering what twitter is all about, and are concerned that it’s just a bunch of narcissists letting everyone know what they have had for breakfast, or are doing right now, even if you don’t really want to know, then here is one to reassure you.

@NLNZ [http://twitter.com/NLNZ] is a twitter account run out of the National Library of New Zealand. They regularly do a tweet called #tbreakstweets which highlights something from their digital collection.    

It is often a humorous or whimsical item and well worth following. Below is todays
