St. Petersburg, Fl. - A Twitter account is providing history fans and social media buffs with a look back in time, to the events surrounding President John F Kennedy's assasination.

It's called JFK Real Time. John F Kennedy was killed on November 22, 1963, so we're just months away from the 50th anniversary of his death.

The Twitter account, @JFKElmStreet is updating in real-time all the events that led to Lee Harvey Oswald shooting J-F-K in Dallas.

So far, the account has tweeted about everything from Lee Harvey Oswald's wife leaving him to when Oswald bought a .38 revolver by mail.

A tweet on January 28 reads, "Oswald bought the .38 revolver by mail from Los Angeles-based Seaport Traders. $10 down & balance of $19.95 paid cash-on-delivery."

As you know, there is a Tampa connection. President Kennedy was in Tampa four days before he was killed. Shortly afterward, Kennedy Boulevard was renamed for him.
