AOAP Twitter Theater Presents: Hamlet, Scene 1 in Tweets

If there’s one complaint every single critic has about Hamlet, it’s that the play is too wordy. Luckily, today, thanks to the power of Twitter, we can see what the play would be like, if the characters had smart phones and each line of dialogue was reduced to 140 characters or less. As you can see, it’s much, much better.
