when u retweet something u can’t edit it, it simply retweets; so, as a comprehensive realist, i struggled with whether or not to take the sans p literally, or actually, and chose the latter. with the missing p’s in ‘http,’ i similarly struggled, but ultimately felt imagined franzen deleting each ‘p,’ and felt giddy about that
There’s the option of ” @ copiedhandle RT Hand-copied text. “, with a gap (or, with some editorial arrogance, a bracketed emendation, as I’ve offered without brackets). Not sure how strict Franz-o is in applying constraints, but one could choose-as-constrained only direct retweets that conform to the master-constraint. (Question: in Perec’s book, is there no cheating in the text Perec directly authored? He was joyfully rigid in playing the constraint game? –as a kind of erotic exercise.)
Am unusually sure that if Franz-o tried such a project and cheated-at-solitaire in this way, he’d be angrily denounced for conniving to support capitalistic degradation of Everything Virtuous, Franzen Derangement Syndrome seems so annihilatory of nuance to me.
Would, on twitter, the http : // introduction to an address print in blue – that is, be an active link – if the “p” were left out?
