The Top 20 #LiteraryTurducken Tweets

Thanksgiving has inspired a new popular hashtag on Twitter: #LiteraryTurducken.

Publishing company Doubleday placed the hashtag in Twitter’s oven Tuesday (Nov. 22), asking followers to combine “not one, not two, but three classic works into one, in the spirit of the turkey+duck+chicken creole classic.”

Since then, #LiteraryTurducken has attracted attention from Twitter’s CEO, book publishers and a slew of Twitter users.
