I'm enjoying following Moby Dick excerpts via Twitter, and Angus MacLise's calendar poem YEAR. Are there any other Twitter accounts like this that the hive would recommend?

Open to novels, plays, poems, stories, essays. Only criteria is a finished work or text chunked up into tweet form (and hopefully enjoyable to you in some way as well!).

@finnegansreader and @Ulyssesreader if you want a bit of Joyce. I find the tweets a bit too frequent to be enjoyable, but ymmv. I follow @TSEliotbot and it's great.

The conceptual poet Vanessa Place is tweeting all of Gone with the Wind.

Teju Cole wrote a really fantastic essay about immigration live on Twitter, including @-replies from people he interviewed - it's concluded now, but you can read it all at that link.
