One of the bloggers I read writes a Twitter round-up for a proper website. I usually ignore it – I mean it’s a Twitter round-up, for god’s sake! – but the other day I decided to take a look. This had three immediate effects on me:
- I had a fit of hysterical laughter – are these tweets for real?!
- I congratulated myself for never having signed up for a Twitter account – I always knew no-one possibly can have anything worthwhile to say in 160 characters, especially on a daily basis.
- I got inspired.
So here I present you with:
Pride & Prejudice in a Dozen (Inane) Tweets
Happy news!! A rich young man just moved in next door.
#REDCOATS R SICK RT IF YOU AGREE
Collins asked Lizzy 2 marry him & she said NO, haha…!!! Mum’s hysterical!
Just got married to @charlottelucas. See my wedding list at John Lewis.
Can’t help loving you. @lizzybennet, will you marry me?
@darcy Are you the last man on earth? No?… Because that would be the only inducement!
On a tour of #Derbyshire with Lizzy. Visited #Pemberley today, nice house and gardens. Had no idea about Lizzy and Darcy! @lizzybennet you sly thing!
DD1, 2 and 5 all married! Trump that @ladylucas
(P.S. Jane Austen is getting dizzy in her grave…)
