Dog House Blog, Social Saturday!
A group of scientists in the department of Astrophysics at Michigan Technological University have tried to find out if time travellers use social media. If people from the future tried to visit the past they may have left clues on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter they declared. They chose two events to research, Pope Francis and Comet ISON. Looking to see references to these topics before they happened they found absolutely nothing.
Unfortunately, the research had some fundamental problems,
1. They should have tried to locate the DeLorean DMC-12.
2. Time travellers don’t have time for social media when they need to save the universe from yet another apocalypse.
3. Okay, so you find them and then they'd have to kill you.
4. If they did decide to go on social media, wouldn’t it be to get 10 billion likes instead of talking about the Pope?
I think I'll stick to the tea leaves to see the future. Have a super social Saturday and keep an eye out for those time travellers.
