James Joyce Twitters, Too.

Unlike most written twitterings, Joyce’s is actually worth the time. From Ulysses:

THE KISSES

(warbling) Leo! (twittering) Icky Icky micky sticky for Leo! (cooing) Coo coocoo! Yummyyum, Womwom! (warbling) Big comebig! Pirouette! Leopopold! (twittering) Leeolee! (warbling) O Leo!

(They rustle, flutter upon his garments, alight, bright giddy flecks, silvery sequins.)
