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?

Ms. Temple to Jane Eyre: How is your new job?
