The newspapers have today filled literally space with the controversial list of the top pseudonymous tweeters taking their user names from Czech novels. I am delighted to reveal, exclusively for my readers, the leading tweeters.
1. @bookoflaughterandforgetting – using the avatar of a hat, a subtle allusion to a tale in Kundera’s work, this pseudonymous blogger is not a member of a boy band and does not tweet to teenage girls.
2. @The_Castle – this tweeter is not a television personality and does not tweet about things in the news and his latest programme.
3. @themournfuldemeanouroflieutenantboruvka – A controversial addition to the list as Skvorecky’s work is a collection of short stories rather than a novel this tweeter is not a stand up comedian and has not written any articles about engagement with the political process.
4. @warwiththenewts – as the name suggests the pseudonym for someone who does not present a daytime television programme with his wife. Tweets here are mainly about the novel he is not writing.
