I’m twittering this Reel Life blog post right now. I wrote that first sentence in just 50 characters, far below the 140 characters I am allowed in any given digital mini-message. Oh, by the way, I'm still writing this blog post. Perhaps these millions of daily 'tweets' are due for some quotes from classic films. It’s time for tweeting twitterlings to start sending movie quote messages to their followers. Listed below are 10 movie quotes that use less than 140 characters (including the quotation marks!). Hey Twitter pals, I'm just about finished writing a blog post. Tweet me like a fool.
