Twitterature – Classic Literature Retold in “Tweets”
The Telegraph reports that two American students have been commissioned by Penguin to write a compilation called Twitterature: The World’s Greatest Books, Now Presented in Twenty Tweets or Less.
The book will be made up of classic novels, abridged in the style of Tweets. (For those not familiar with the lingo, Tweets are short messages sent via the social networking site Twitter.)
At this time, it’s not known what literary masterpieces will be dramitically pared down but the book is expected to be released this autumn.
