In case you hadn’t noticed it, social media is everywhere. It’s becoming an ever-more popular way for people to communicate, to work together, to share and so on. So I got to thinking (yeah, watch out when I do that! )… What if some of crime fiction’s famous sleuths had Twitter accounts? What would their tweets be like? Here are just a few of my ideas for…
Tweets From Fictional Sleuths

Dinner at @chezmatante was delicious. Highly recommended.
Going with @captainahastings to the theatre. I hope it won’t be a detective play. They are always so predictable.
New #shoes received today: http://twitpic.com/b47fni . Not exactly comfortable but très soigné, n’est-ce pas?

Getting hungry. McD’s or Rosie’s for dinner?
Don’t worry, @henrypitts. Am fine – back in three days or so. Maybe.

#edits finally done! Patrik’s cooking dinner so I have time for a shower at last.
Going to be offline tomorrow. Following up on something interesting I found out. Might be related to – well, it should be interesting anyway.
Anna coming for dinner tonight! Must stop and get some things for that. Patrik on a case so it’ll just be us. Fun! Hmmm… what wine?

Three Pines? Again? Well at least there’ll be good coffee and food at the bistro.
@jgbeauvoir I won’t be in the office tomorrow. It’s Reine-Marie’s birthday. Let everyone know will you and call me if there’s an emergency.
Going to @claramorrowartist ’s new show this evening. Should be fantastic – highly recommended. #montrealartscene

New ACPO uniform makes me look like an idiot! It’s three sizes too big! #ridiculous #nothappening
@hazeflinders Too right it’s been too long! Time we got together. Should be over your way tomorrow. No need for bandages this time – so far
@motorjack Yeah, I’m good. ACPO job finally settling down a little. You heading this way any time soon?
What do you think? What tweets might you see if you followed some famous fictional sleuths????
Happy Weekend, Everyone!
