Tweetspeare- Othello in Tweets

In response to Nina Killham’s brilliant twitter version of Romeo and Juliet and Fiona Dunbar’s hilarious twitter Macbeth, I give you Othello. It’s in Tweets, you have to read up from the bottom – I took the whole tweet thing a bit too seriously…

Desdemona: @girlfriends need help,  he’s here, he’s got a pillow, I think he’s going to k…

DM Desdemona @girlfriends help me!

DM: Othello, wait there, I’m coming to our room.

DM: Desdemona: That’s not true @othello, I only love you

DM Othello: @desdemona  Going to miss @cassio are you?  I knew you fancied him!

DM Desdemona:@othello what have you done?

DM Othello: @desdemona  I did ask @cassio and now his mouth is stopp’d.

DM Desdemona: @othello I didn’t, promise, ask @cassio
