Twitter Accounts: Back in Time

Do you ever think back and wonder what it would have been like if Twitter had always been around? I do.

It's been awhile since we've had a little fun at the Space Station, so I thought I'd take you back in time to a Twitterdom far, far, away and share some Twitter posts of some folks you've probably heard of from racing's past with their faux Twitter handles and avatars, of course.

Joe Hirsch, Turf Writer
"@TheDean: Someday they'll name a Press Box after me that will last forever. #churchill #hinthint"

Bing Crosby
"@WhiteChristmas: Racetrack? That song is about my dinner. #steakandlobster #DelMar"

Chic Anderson
"@TremendousCaller: Need a signature line...drawing a blank....anybody?"

Jimmy The Greek
"@TheGreek: Bet the gray horses I hear they have an extra tendon."

 "@BigRed: Funny that you use a sham to dust things, 'cuz I just dusted that dude. #sham #31andaHalf" 

"@Bridesmaid78: @PeteAxthelm: Stop complaining, I told you to bet me to place."
