I recently came across this "performance" where members of the Royal Shakespeare Company are writing Tweets as the characters in an updated version of Romeo and Juliet. The play is supposed to last 5 weeks, and all Tweets are sent during the time they would happen in the play.
Sounds like an interesting project. I signed up to follow all 6 characters...the story is a little divergent IMO, but sounds like an interesting experiment.
Here's the link for anyone interested.
