So I am not really a Twitter-er (yet), however I am slowly getting the hang of it! In high school I read Shakespeare from 9th grade to 12th and it wasn’t always the easiest thing to read as a 14 year old! However, when I was a senior, my English teacher was really into Twitter and she thought it was cool that someone took stories such as Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet and turned them into 21st century slang! It was cool! It was something I never really thought about and it was cool to think that someone had a Twitter just devoted to that and possibly made money off of it! Today not many people wanna sit down and read 16th century text, however it is easier for people today to pull out their Kindle and read a book on Twitter and Facebook feed about 16th century text!
