Here’s what elections of yesteryear would look like on Twitter

We give pre-Twitter presidential elections the tweet treatment.

Founded during George W. Bush’s second presidential term (2006), Twitter has firmly established itself as the heartbeat of political media.

Collectively, we’ve spent a comical number of human hours refreshing our Twitter timelines over the past 48 hours.

With this in mind, we wanted to apply the Twitter treatment to one of America’s most iconic cultural artifacts — the day-after-election newspaper front page.

Starting with Bush Jr.’s second presidential election win, here’s how elections of yesteryear may have been called on Twitter:

November 3, 2004: George W. Bush

November 7, 1984: Ronald Reagan

November 7, 1956: Dwight D. Eisenhower

November 4, 1936: Franklin D. Roosevelt
