We could reprint the entire Declaration of Independence, as we have in the past, but then that wouldn’t really give you anything to do. Last week, Slate wondered what would have happened if Thomas Jefferson had had a Twitter account instead of a quill pen. The result was the #tinydeclaration contest on Twitter. Some favorites:
Daniel Pink: A bunch of us ragtag colonists have decided to take on the world’s most powerful army! LOL. #tinydeclaration
TheBosha: British Empire, we quit. But we’ll always buy even your worst rock stars and reflexively drop our panties for your accents. #TinyDeclaration
So what’s yours? Distill the Declaration to its essential core. In 140 characters or less, tell us what TJ would have tweeted.
