Borges and I and Twitter

BookFox has a funny post about dead writers who have been miraculously resurrected via Twitter.

You can now read literary tweets from the likes of Hemingway, Melville, Shakespeare, Mark Twain and Flannery O'Connor.

My favorite is the Twitter page for Jorge Luis Borges.

Sample Borgesian tweet:

"Woke up this morning and found myself lying next to me. I look so peaceful when I sleep."

Sadly, though, Mr. Borges (Twitter name: BorgesKnowsBest) has only seven followers.
