Twitter Round-up (and Swotter)

November 29, 2007

So, I’ve been meaning to write about Swotter for a while. A couple of weeks ago, it finished reading the whole of James Joyce’s Ulysses to Twitter. I think there’s something kind of amazing about that, but I’m not sure what. Final stats:

  • Followers: 198 (meh)
  • Updates: 23,467 (phew!)

Props to the hardcore who followed it all the way. I’m not sure what to say about this, but I’m going to have a think, and I’d love to hear your thoughts. Check the Swotter page too, for more info.

In the mean time, I thought I’d do a quick round-up of lit-related action on Twitter, in no particular order:

That’s enough for now, but I’d love to hear more. Please add your favourites in the comments and I’ll add them to the list, with a view to moving this to a dedicated page at some point. Note that it’s not really a list for individuals, unless they’re relentlessly lit-focussed.

    Probably there are more since I composed that, though.
