Twitter users reliving memories with yearbooks

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Our frequent looks through the Twitter universe for all the chatter on yearbooks always show just how valuable they are in preserving memories. Besides, as this week’s entry shows, you will need that yearbook 10 years from now when your classmate ends up famous on TV.

@twhyrock BAHHHH! I just saw someone I went to MIDDLE SCHOOL with on TV. ripped thru all my yearbooks til i found her. C R A Z Y!

@Anthonyislegit So I was going through my yearbooks and reading all the things people wrote to me, and it’s honestly crazy how much life has changed…

@AntoinetteAC When u look back at middle school yearbooks while in high school u realize how funny most of ur friends looked #justathought

@AllisonB Totally distracted from packing as I’m sucked into browsing through yearbooks. Holy moly fascinating.

@Gahbeeee I love seeing people I know in old yearbooks when they were little. It makes me smile.
