The 2 Teenagers Who Run the Wildly Popular Twitter Feed @HistoryInPics []

There is a new ubiquitous media brand on Twitter.

No, I\’m not talking about Pierre Omidyar\’s First Look Media or BuzzFeed or The Verge, or any other investor-backed startup.

I\’m talking about @HistoryInPics, which, as I discovered, is run by two teenagers: Xavier Di Petta, 17, who lives in a small Australian town two hours north of Melbourne, and Kyle Cameron, 19, a student in Hawaii.

They met hustling on YouTube when they were 13 and 15, respectively, and they\’ve been doing social media things together (off and on) since. They\’ve built YouTube accounts, making money off advertising. They created Facebook pages such as \”Long romantic walks to the fridge,\” which garnered more than 10 million Likes, and sold them off. More recently, Di Petta\’s company, Swift Fox Labs, has hired a dozen employees, and can bring in, according to an Australian news story, 50,000 Australian dollars a month (or roughly 43,800 USD at current exchange rates).

But @HistoryInPics may be the duo\’s biggest creation.
