To Kill A Mockingbird: Twitter feeds

However, what starts as a childish prank quickly turns dangerous, eventually culminating in shots being fired and Jem temporarily misplacing his pants.

In order to keep straight the many events of that night, students created fake Twitter feeds from the point of view of one of the characters, providing “live updates” of each new and dramatic development.

Twitter didn’t yet exist in 1934, but it is clear that if it had, these characters would certainly have had something to say!
