Tweetability and Readability

Robin wrote a good story: Last Beautiful.  http://ur1.ca/sees
I thought Robin’s writing was “twitterish” – most of the sentences were under 140 characters. http://ur1.ca/seex
Maybe microblogging pushed him to write better, snappier sentences? http://ur1.ca/sewq
Sounds like a hypothesis – let’s make that story easy to parse: http://ur1.ca/sefl
Time to break out the python and turn this story into tweets: http://gist.github.com/348616

Now that story is a spreadsheet: http://ur1.ca/see9
Conclusion: 75% tweetable! – Hypothesis confirmed!

But wait, there's more
