**20FD Tolkien's Twitter! Can't Post

This was inspired by Amazon's "Lord of the Rings on Prime" twitter account. Would the dear Professor be horrified? Or find it a useful communication tool?

So let's be anachronistic and suppose Professor Tolkien did have a twitter account, back in the days when he was teaching and writing The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and the bits and pieces of his Legendarium! What would some of his tweets be?

"Grading exams getting tedious. Jotted down odd word, 'hobbit', on blank page. No idea what it is, must consult OED."

"Told boys the Riddle Game part of "Hobbit" last night. Had to chastise John for blurting out answers too soon, not giving brothers a chance at it."

Use the subject line to post your responses.

Having had only the best of intentions, it appears that - as well as earthy Hobbits and elegant Elves I have created a monster. A plethora of monsters, in fact. Mea culpa. Eheu... [In reply to] Can't Post

And Rose drew him in, and set him on the harpsichord bench, and put little Wilhelm Friedemann upon his lap.

He began composing a fugue. 'Well, I'm Bach,' he said.
