This is an idea I had a while ago, after reading some fluff piece about how Twitter is destroying our brains yadda yadda yadda. Here are some samples of Lord of the Rings, in 140 characters at a time, with some extra pop-culture attitude thrown in.

Bad Hotels (yes, I checked the chronology):

Frodo: Prancing Pony in Bree gets zero stars from me.
Gandalf: @Frodo You should see the place I got stuck at a couple of weeks ago.

Breakup of the Fellowship.

Frodo: Later doodz.
Aragorn: @Frodo Wait!
Samwise is now following Frodo.
Gollum is now following Frodo.
Boromir: Ow.
Pippin: Mmmf.
Orcs: LOL.

Feel free to add your own. I’m sure somebody else can do better, and other books are fair game too.
