Twitter’s #LiteraryTypos Hashtag is Hilarious

Twitter provides some pretty funny and clever literary quips and we’re proud to be a part of the Twitter literary community. Over the last couple of days, the #LiteraryTypos hashtag has been trending to hilarious effect, showing some real imagination and creativity.

These games are so much fun to get involved in, but they’re also a great way to find new followers and seek out all the best literary members of the Twitterati. Here are a few of our favourites from the #LiteraryTypos hashtag, why not head over there and get involved yourself?

Some people even got a little political about the entire thing.

Either way, we welcome you to this strange and wonderful article on some of the more sexy/bizarre areas of literature lovers.

It should be obvious by now but SERIOUSLY NOT SAFE FOR WORK. Unless you work in a sex shop, or your boss, like mine, is super cool.
