Writing the U.S. Constitution (in Tweets)

223 years ago today, the Con­sti­tu­tion­al Con­ven­tion start­ed meet­ing secret­ly in Philadel­phia. Sev­er­al months lat­er, the meet­ings end­ed with the sign­ing of the US Con­sti­tu­tion. Start­ing today, the Nation­al Con­sti­tu­tion Cen­ter will use Twit­ter to reen­act the events of the Con­ven­tion. You can fol­low @SecretDelegate, a mys­te­ri­ous insid­er, who will show you what hap­pened inside the pri­vate pro­ceed­ings. The “Twit­ter Con­ven­tion” will con­clude on Sep­tem­ber 17, when the Con­sti­tu­tion was signed, and only then will the true iden­ti­ty of @SecretDelegate be revealed. You can be among the first to fol­low these tweets.
