Smartphones are so commonplace these days; I must see at least 30 or so when I’m out in public. People are sending texts or posting updates to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. So then I got to wondering…what would happen if we took famous literary characters and gave them Twitter accounts?
Pride and Prejudice
Bingley to Darcy: Bennet’s having a 5 for 1 sale on daughters this weekend. Interested? #love #prettygirls
Ms. Temple to Jane Eyre: How is your new job?
Jane Eyre to Ms. Temple: Adele great but there is pyro in house! This was SO not in my union contract. #job #escape
The Hound of the Baskervilles
Sherlock Holmes to Dr. Watson: Will you PLEASE GET THAT DOG TO STOP BARKING??!! #ASPCA
Odysseus to Penelope: Lost. Send GPS or pray to gods. #travel #history
Catherine to Heathcliff: Would you stop with the stalking already? #fbi #police
