Dangerous tweets

Students looked at the first six tweets from Olivier and Livingston's translation of Les Liaisons Dangereuses into a novel composed solely of tweets and discussed how each letter had been distilled and compressed into a single tweet. They followed up ideas of personal interpretation and appropriate, idiomatic language to compose their own tweets, translations of the key 'bet' scene in the films Dangerous Liaisons or Cruel Intentions, aka letter V from the original novel. The results were diverse, smart and often hilarious.
