Abraham Lincoln Is Now On Twitter

by Dan Koelsch

It’s not often that you see a serious film test out the viral marketing landscape, so this is a nice treat. Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have started up a special character Twitter account for Robert Redford’s The Conspirator. This isn’t just any character, though; It’s President Abraham Lincoln.

Just in time for the 16th President’s 201st birthday tomorrow, the Twitter account @1865Lincoln has been created for the film that tweets a combination of his own words and facts about him. How much more we get out of this before the film’s April 15th release is unknown, but like Alex from FirstShowing who broke the story, I think it will only interest certain people. Still, it doesn’t hurt to educate the social media masses on one of America’s most important historical figures.

The Conspirator stars James McAvoy and Alexis Bledel, and centers around the investigation and trial of Mary Surratt, accused of being one the conspirators in Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. Watch the trailer for the film below.
