Just for fun, I'm going to try and chart the story of Persuasion via Twitter, 140 characters at a time. Shouldn't all platforms be in the service of Austen?
Here's my first entry:
Sir Walter Elliot, baronet, engages in 19th cent. Wikipedi-ing: Rereads
and edits entry on the Elliots in The Baronetage.
Granted, it's not brilliant. It's not even literature. But you try and describe the first part of Chapter 1 in 140 characters. It's a fun challenge. Go ahead. In the comments.
Next up: The second half of Chapter 1!
