Pride and Prejudice / poem for twittersilence / BBC World Service

This week I was commissioned to write a piece about the #twitterboycott for the BBC World Service. With all the furore that's been going on, from Jane Austen on the new ten pound note and women recieving death threat tweets, it was quite a challenge and quite a meaty subject to get my teeth into. This programme was aired on Tues 6th August on ‪#‎bbcclickradio on both BBC World Service & BBC Radio 4.‬
