Twitterature

According to the authors:

Perhaps you once asked yourself, ‘What exactly is Hamlet trying to tell me? Why must he mince his words, muse in lyricism and, in short, whack about the shrub?’ No doubt such troubling questions would have been swiftly resolved were the Prince of Denmark a registered user on Twitter.com.

The authors:

Alexander Aciman (left) and Emmett Rensin (right) are students at the University of Chicago. Alexander’s work has appeared in The New York Times and the New York Sun. He would like to be a writer, own a pair of John Lobb shoes, and live out his days reading and writing with his brothers in the Mediterranean basin. While Emmett’s dream is to be a sea captain, he has settled on a mastery of card magic and shaggy-dog jokes, and penning the Great American Novel. They are both nineteen years old.
