Sounds like an excellent idea to me:
Consolidating its position at the cutting edge of new media technology, the Guardian today announces that it will become the first newspaper in the world to be published exclusively via Twitter, the sensationally popular social networking service that has transformed online communication.
A mammoth project is also under way to rewrite the whole of the newspaper\’s archive, stretching back to 1821, in the form of tweets. Major stories already completed include "1832 Reform Act gives voting rights to one in five adult males yay!!!"; "OMG Hitler invades Poland, allies declare war see tinyurl.com/b5x6e for more"; and "JFK assassin8d @ Dallas, def. heard second gunshot from grassy knoll WTF?"
….eliminating the waffle and bluster of the original.
So, a competition I think. Who can give us the perfect, the archtypal, Polly Toynbee column in only 140 characters?
All your money, all your life, is belong to the State?
