@Romeo. Wherefore art thou? Twitter does Shakespeare

The Royal Shakespeare Company has just unveiled its latest version of Romeo and Juliet.

However, you won't be able to see the actors or hear the words. It's all being done through the website Twitter.

For the next five weeks the plot will unfold in little messages written by the actors, as they live out a modern day version of the tragic love story.

David Sillito reports.
