As mentioned above, when a new article is released to the News Service, it is automatically posted on the @4H_History twitter account. You will receive a tweet from @4H_History within minutes of the article being released.

Subscribing to the Twitter feed is as easy as clicking on the ‘Follow 4H_History’ button found on the right margin of all of the News Service pages.


A Facebook presence was established in July of 2015 at /4H.History. Like the Twitter feed, anytime an article is released to the News Service, it is automatically re-posted on the Facebook page.
