Mentor text of the day: Elaine Blacktree Tweets

Twittature or twitterature can be fun, silly, and disposable, but it can also be a means of creative re-imagining of a work of literature.  Margo Walter reworked The Bell Jar as 113 tweets from Elaine Blacktree  a few years ago, and it is still the most sophisticated piece of Twitterature I have seen a student produce.  She did a nice job of incorporating other social media as well so that they piece took advantage of some of the medium’s affordances.

Twitterature can also happen outside the medium, as in these examples, which are now collected in a book.
