Israeli army relives Six Day War on Twitter

Wednesday, June 05, 2013 |  Israel Today Staff

These days every conflict features minute-by-minute updates and commentary via social media, especially micro-blogging website Twitter. Israel's last Gaza campaign, Operation Pillar of Cloud, was a perfect example, when even the Israeli army got in on the social media action.

What if some of Israel's bigger, more important wars had also been covered live on Twitter? Wonder no longer (at least not if you understand Hebrew).

Starting today, the anniversary of the start of the Six Day War in 1967, the Israeli army will be posting "tweets" as though they were coming from soldiers involved in that conflict. A "live blogging" of the Six Day War...46 years after the fact.

A special Twitter account has been set up for the exercise, and can be found at twitter.com/IDF1967 (Hebrew only)
