Note on Tweet, Tweet: Peter Facinelli was interviewed a while ago about his twitter. In the course of the interview, he said, "Carlisle would definitely have a twitter." I was subsequently challenged by friends to write Carlisle's twitter feed.
I made some minor adjustments to the presentation of Twitter just to make it easier to follow (not the least of which was putting the oldest tweets at the top so that it can be read in order). I also didn't put in timestamps, but suffice it to say that sometimes there's a longer gap between tweets than others. Suspend disbelief as needed. This is set in 2010, making Nessie physically 3.5, and given that her rate of growth decays exponentially, I'm imagining puts her at about young teen/tween.
As always, the characters and their world belong to Stephenie Meyer. Any mistakes I've made in interpreting them, are, of course, my own.

VampDad (a)1901Pianist It's alive! (Or…not.)
1901Pianist (a)VampDad :eyeroll: Your text messages are coming through fine, just so you know.
VampDad (a)1901Pianist Oh good. Because I was starting to wonder if Verizon had managed to cut off you and only you.

VampDad (a)SuaCantante Why are you at a grocery store?
GrizzlyKiller (a)SuaCantante Why are you at Costco?
SuaCantante (a)1901Pianist (a)VampDad (a)GrizzlyKiller I just want you all to know that Esme's response was, "Men."
VampDad (a)SuaCantante Is that where she is?
SuaCantante (a)1901Pianist (a)VampDad (a)GrizzlyKiller I have children to feed.

LochNessMonst (a)1901Pianist I can still read your tweets, Dad.
LochNessMonst (a)1901Pianist Also…ew?
SuaCantante (a)VampDad Esme says to turn your phone back on if you're just sitting at your desk.
VampDad (a)SuaCantante What makes her think I'm just sitting at my desk?
SuaCantante (a)VampDad Carlisle, you just tweeted me back in under thirty seconds.
VampDad (a)SuaCantante Point taken. Have her ring me again.
8CylinderRoses I want a Zagato. One without a working engine.
CrystalBall (a)8CylinderRoses Christmas…
CrystalBall (a)GrizzlyKiller See, well, now you've gone and spoiled it. I was just suggesting it *might* happen…
GrizzlyKiller (a)CrystalBall I'm going to tear you to pieces when I get home.
CrystalBall (a)GrizzlyKiller I don't see myself in pieces tonight, so good luck with that. :-)
SuaCantante (a)CrystalBall (a)GrizzlyKiller Esme says to knock it off.
GrizzlyKiller (a)SuaCantante I thought you weren't talking to me? (a)1901Pianist
GrizzlyKiller Besides, isn't (a)CrystalBall supposed to be with the spawn? Why is she on twitter?
LochNessMonst is opposed to being called "the spawn."
GrizzlyKiller What? It's funny.
8CylinderRoses It's rude.
AlphaMale1989 (a)GrizzlyKiller Are you LOOKING for a throw-down?
***Direct message from SuaCantante Okay, what on earth did you just say to Esme?
***D SuaCantante Just that I thought I might need to stay late this evening.
1901Pianist I can't side with you on the spawn thing, E. She's my daughter.
LochNessMonst (a)1901Pianist Thanks, Dad.
GrizzlyKiller (a)AlphaMale1989 Oh, bring it, wolfieboy.
GrizzlyKiller (a)AlphaMale1989 Wait….are YOU over there?
GrizzlyKiller (a)LochNessMonst BUSTED! (a)1901Pianist
***Direct message from SuaCantante She's really hoping you'll be home tonight.
***Direct message from SuaCantante She's doing that Esme thing where she smiles but you know you've totally let her down?
***D SuaCantante Well, shit.
GrizzlyKiller (a)SuaCantante Ooh, what'd he do?
SuaCantante He just DMed me the s-word!
GrizzlyKiller Hot damn!
1901Pianist (a)VampDad I'm…so proud of you. :sniff:
LochNessMonst (a)SuaCantante I know that the "s-word" is "shit." It's okay. Really.
SuaCantante You're setting a bad example. (a)VampDad.
VampDad I HIT ENTER BY MISTAKE! Do we need to have a debate?
CrystalBall (a)VampDad I was trying to tweet to stop you, but that was too last-minute.
1901Pianist (a)VampDad My, you're getting saucy in your old age.
8CylinderRoses - -is just laughing.
LochNessMonst (a)VampDad Saucy. Like, fresh.
VampDad is wondering when he became food.
1901Pianist :sigh: urbandictionary(.)com (a)VampDad Look it up.
VampDad Weren't we just talking about (a)AlphaMale1989?
AlphaMale1989 I'm in my apartment, not at E and B's.
LochNessMonst …did I just get scapegoated by Granddad?
VampDad ((a)LochNessMonst Sorry, Sweet.)
1901Pianist (a)LochNessMonst Is your hw done, Miss Tweety?
LochNessMonst (a)1901Pianist Um…it's just an essay on the reconstruction. It's getting done, don't worry.
LochNessMonst ((a)VampDad It's your birthday, you're forgiven. But only today.)
1901Pianist (a)LochNessMonst What do you mean "It's getting done?"
1901Pianist (a)SouthShallRise Are you doing her homework?
AlphaMale1989 Well, it's firsthand knowledge, right?
SuaCantante (a)SouthShallRise Jasper!
SouthShallRise I don't use this thing, remember?
1901Pianist (a)SouthShallRise We got you an iPhone for a reason.
SouthShallRise Get off my back.
GrizzlyKiller (a)SouthShallRise I bet there's an app for that.
***D SuaCantante Is *this* why Esme is upset? RT (a)LochNessMonst ((a)VampDad It's your birthday, you're forgiven. But only today.)
***D SuaCantante Oh. That's why you're at Costco, too. I see it, now.
SouthShallRise I'm turning off the ringer...
LochNessMonst (a)SouthShallRise Do you need my help?
SouthShallRise Not funny.
***Direct Message from SuaCantante You're a vampire. It's not actually possible that you forgot it was your birthday.
1901Pianist Look, I get home from work in 25 mins. There had better be an essay that is NOT written by my brother. Capisce? (a)LochNessMonst
SuaCantante (a)1901Pianist We're on our way home, too.

AlphaMale1989 Hey, you guys bringin cake? (a)SuaCantante
***Direct Message from SuaCantante It's the only chance we get to celebrate you. Edward pouts if any of the rest of us get you Fathers' Day stuff.
SuaCantante (a)AlphaMale1989 Yep! Just for you. And maybe the Monster.
***D SuaCantante I just hate fusses. Something you and I have in common.
LochNessMonst is opposed to being called "the Monster."
SuaCantante (a)LochNessMonst It's said with love.
***Direct Message from SuaCantante We're just having a little family get-together, that's all. Then you and Esme will have the evening to yourselves.
***D SuaCantante With cake…
***Direct Message from SuaCantante The cake isn't actually for you.
1901Pianist (a)CrystalBall Would you check on the Monster and make sure she's not letting your husband write her essay?
SuaCantante (a)1901Pianist No worries. We're home and Esme just went to boot her off the computer.
***D SuaCantante I can think of things to do with the cake…
***Direct Message from SuaCantante !Has Edward explained to you the term "TMI"?
EsmeAnne (a)VampDad I just put the silk sheets on the bed…
VampDad (a)EsmeAnne :raises eyebrows:

8CylinderRoses Thank god we have our own place right now…
CrystalBall Yep. That will do it. (a)EsmeAnne
