Another amusing Twitter application:

Converting classic novels into 140 character tweets. From the Guardian comes an article about this new medium and this treatment of Pride and Prejudice, one of my wife’s favorite books:

Woman meets man called Darcy who seems horrible. He turns out to be nice really. They get together.

Or how about this Tweet of Ulysses:

Man walks around Dublin. We follow every minute detail of his day. He’s probably overtweeting.

I thought I’d take a crack at a couple as well. Feel free to try this yourself, perhaps with one of your favorite novels. 

You can follow me at

Lord of the Flies:

Boys survive plane crash on island and separate into warring tribes. Simon is mistakenly killed. Piggy is murdered as the navy arrives.

Julius Caesar:

Caesar is killed by friends who fear that he will be made King. If conspirators would listen to Cassius, all would be well. They do not.

The Road

Man and boy should have remained in the nuclear fallout bunker full of supplies. They don’t. It ends badly for the man and for the boy, too. Probably.
