18 Tweets You Might See, If Charles Dickens Used Twitter

by anna on May 25, 2009

  1. Right.
  2. This is bollocks.
  3. I get paid by the word, do you see? Do you see my objection?
  4. How am I to introduce 42 characters w/ peculiar names, dead-end plots, obscure origins, and mysterious benefactors, in less than 140 charact
  5. Yarg. QED. #twitterfail
  6. gal loses pregnancy, decides to wear maternity clothes 4evr, w8 4 baby that never comes. Cobwebs, rotting diaper cake? rough idea, thots?
  7. In retrospect, yes: Oliver! was atrocious. But it was the 60s, & I was jacked up on black beauties & Simon & Garfunkel. Sue me.
  8. The will is a character, do you see? The will dictates the plot. Really, must I always spell it out?
  9. People, apple shampoo is ONLY trending because you all keep asking why apple shampoo is trending.
  10. Nay, but muttonchops are a style that will stand the test of time. #sideburns
  11. Following @Thackeray, with no follow back! Vanitas, vanitatum indeed! I say, good DAY!
  12. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times–time for Chucky D to get hisself a pork pie, is what time it was. #toomuchgoodstuff
  13. @GEliot, no I LIKE the tedious length & mind-numbing philosophical digressions. It’s the arcane quotes I’m not sure about.
  14. @JimCarrey as Scrooge might be a mistake. But Zemeckis was already on board & creepy animation aside, I couldn’t say no to the easy payday.
  15. People think Victorians are uptight, but the truth is Victoria & Albert are pretty hardcore. e.g. last night: “Hold my hair!” #3drunk words
  16. To those that unfollowed after @Thackeray tweet, when was the last time he talked to YOU at Vauxhall?
  17. One time I heard Jay Leno refer to Tim Burton’s work as “Dickensian.” Pshaw. And that was the last time I watched him.
  18. Want a monarch to follow you? Mention them by name & you’ll show up in a vanity search. Also works on internet stars. #IbeetlejuicedQueenV
