Polling TwitterLitters and Twittering in Threes

I've been debating whether it would be a good idea to retweet older TwitterLit tweets once a day, both to give first lines a second showing and to bring TwitterLit to people at different times of the day. I polled the followers of @TwitrLit the other day to try and see what the general opinion would be for doing this, but the response was small and thus not much help.

So here's my plan. Starting Saturday, July 31st, I'm going to retweet a "classic" TwitterLit first line at 3:00 P.M. Eastern Time. This will be in addition to the new first lines that are posted at about 9:00 A.M. and 9:00 P.M. I'll do this for a week and then decide whether I want to continue doing it, based both on how much trouble it is to post them and what the response to the retweets is. (The retweets will only appear in the @TwitrLit Twitter stream, not on the blog or on @TwitrLitUK or @TwitrLitCA.)

Here's the poll if you want to weigh in. And if you're looking to fill your life with even more literary quotes, please give my @ScatterLit Twitter account a look.
