Nixon’s Watergate Resignation Live-Tweeted, With Its Own Hashtag

Richard Nixon became the first president to resign from office 40 years ago today -- an event being marked on social media by his presidential library in Yorba Linda.

The library today has been live-tweeting Nixon's final hours in office.
