Twitter memes are catching on like crazy. People love to do things like “Follow Friday,” where on Fridays you start following new people and you tweet about it. (Note: please don’t follow me just because it’s Friday. Follow me because you can’t bear to go another day without reading my random brain farts.)
I’m thinking we need to up the ante a bit. How about literary Twitter memes? Days of the week in which you tweet in the style of a famous writer!
For example we could have Martin Amis Mondays, where you take inordinate pleasure in using obscure and arcane vocabulary.
Or how about Shakespeare Saturdays, when all your tweets are in iambic pantameter?
Or we could keep it simple with Hemingway Wednesdays, when you use short, declarative sentences, and every word is pure and true.
Woo hoo! Twitter for people who like to read!
