#ILovePrideandPrejudice: Pride and Prejudice Goes Viral

Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and PrejudiceWhat would Pride and Prejudice be like if people had Twitter accounts back then? I’d love to find out. An event like the local assembly in Meryton would be a great topic for a hashtag and a flurry of Tweets!

(Not familiar with how Twitter works? Read a quick tutorial and then dive right into the fun.)

Note: Tweets are in reverse order for ease of reading.

ROTFLMBO!!!! Sadly, I have a twitter account that I never use, I have a hard enough time keeping up with my FB account at times! I can only imagine how Jane Austen's characters would react to today's technological advances while still following yesteryears social strictures, it would be amusing to say the very least!

Very clever idea. You did a great job! Do you think Mr. Darcy is too pompous to tweet? You know Mr. Bingley would have an account.
