“History In Pix” is a twitter account that tweets out historical pictures. They have over 352,000 followers and usually tweet out some interesting historical pictures.
Today they made something of a double faux pas.
First they tweeted out a picture, allegedly of John Lennon and Che Guevara playing guitar together.

While Lennon and Guevara at points in their lives had long hair, somehow I don’t think they ever had sex change operations.
History In Pix then pulled the errant tweet, and replaced it with this:

Except the above picture is a fake, the two never met. “Bull shit” says a Beatle expert whom I consulted, “Never happened”.
Good thing most of us don’t learn our history from Twitter…
