Pansy Parkinson's Tweets are really getting on my nerves...

Each week, YA Highway hosts Road Trip Wednesday, a blog carnival in which contributors discuss a topic on their blogs and invite readers to do the same. This week's RTW topic is:

If literary characters had Twitter accounts, whose tweets would you follow?

What do you mean IF literary characters had Twitter accounts? They're driving me crazy! I'm ready to unfollow every single one of them! I can barely see my fellow authors' and writers' Tweets over their incessant Tweet-yammering.

Pansy going on about how much she loves Draco. Ron whining about his brothers. Rhett provoking Scarlett.

Don't believe me? See for yourself.

My Twitter feed from last night:

See what I mean?!

Mad, all of them.

(Except Scarlett and Hermione, who are—as always—awesome.)


Jen said...

I think I need to get back on twitter and start following some super interesting people! Who doesn't love Hermione!

Holly Dodson said...

I can see why they'd get annoying! But their conversations are hilarious.

Sarah Enni said...

oh my goodness BlockadeRhett -- this made me laugh out loud so inappropriately at work just now.
Can we start the #evenwizardboyssuck hashtag like, now?


Kirsten said...

Haha... Ron is my fave. I didn't even know you could follow literary characters on Twitter! I bet there are lots of Harry Potters...

Pam Harris said...

LOL, this is too cute. :)

Ella Press said...

That is awesome!
I second Sarah's notion :D

Marquita Hockaday said...

Cute post :) Real creative- your fiction has to be awesome if you can create this for a post ;)

Kate Hart said...


Gone With The Wind FTW.

and my word verification is "wizedies"!

The Blue Lipstick Samurai said...

LMAO, favorite post! I died reading this.

Kaitlin Ward said...

Love the random real people mixed in with the literary characters! I need to follow more fake people on twitter!

Kristin Miller said...

Brilliant. So funny - I didn't even think about Scarlett and Rhett, but of course I would follow them. Just to see him tweet THAT LINE over and over again. Hee hee.

Sajidah said...

So funny. I forgot about Scarlett in my list. She'd be a hoot.

Anonymous said...!

(This is one of those moments where you think, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.)

I wouldn't be able to handle following those people. Kudos for your tolerance. :)

Michelle Schusterman said...

OMG. Hysterical.

Joseph Rooks said...

Yeah, following people who tweet garbage is a great way to ruin twitter for yourself.

Remilda Graystone said...

lol, brilliant. I loved Hermione and Ron going back and forth. And Pansy's tweet was funny.

Lee Bross said...

Seriously why has it never occurred to me to actually see if characters tweet.

Now I am doomed! LOL

Abby Stevens said...

Jen - Hermione is one of my favorite characters in all of literature. :)

Holly - Thank you!

Sarah - I'm glad it made you laugh! I'm never quite sure of my own comedy, but it made me laugh, so... Hopefully you didn't get a bunch of odd stares from coworkers. :P And the hashtage, sure! I just have no idea how I'd use it. LOL

Kirsten - Thanks! I felt I captured Ron's 'disgruntledness' pretty well!

Pam, Ella, and (especially) Marquita - GRACIAS!

Kate - I think we have a new Broadway - WIZEDY - a wizard comedy of epic proportions!

Blue - Thank you!

Kaitlin - Ha ha, thanks! I thought it'd make it seem a little more real (maybe too real... lol).

Kristin - YES! "@ScarlettsTara Frankly, my dear..."

Lilah - LOL

Michelle - :) I'm glad you thought it was funny! I was worried the humor wouldn't translate from my head to the blog properly!

Joe - Lol. If these were real feeds, I'd definitely unfollow them.

Remilda - Thank you! I wondered if anyone would get Pansy since she's a little more obscure, which is why I put her in my title. Thank you for this awesome blog topic idea!

Lee - Lol :)
