Twittversal Drawl - 01 (Novel)

1: This is New York. I know that "this" is an over-used phrase, especially when writing things down, but each word is accurate - and true.
2: So, I begin again: this is New York - though there are still some pockets where the pronunciation is mangled.
3: One is foreign - for example from Latin America, which is heavy on the Latin, but not lingam -
4: but the other is good, old, down home center of Neu Yark nativized drawl - though they would not used the word "drawl".
5: Best place to hear it, is beneath the - once - the house that Ruth built. Though, of course, it no longer was.
6: You may have guess that I study such things - and even tooked course toward a degree. English they called it - but I knew it as American.
7: Because, I never had known a real Englishperson - or people. And, anyway, they speak it with a number of differences.
8: Like "lorry" - what's that, you ask? Look it up, I have a fist full of links if you need them - or ask it on Facebook and Twitter.
9: Just to be clear: if you recount this to anyone else - tell them mine name. I need the publicity.
10: Where was I? Oh, yes, the shades of meaning between foreign and domestic pronunciations of New York - note it enunciations in my mouth.
11: With an example from the Bronx. Where I grew up.
12: But this is just elucidating – the needs to be a story someplace, and it needs to be told. But in batches; I will type to Twitter next.
13: And since I can be counted on to tell it, here goes to whole thing – one and all.
14: Though, it must be said that the is more "one" than "all" - because on the cosmic - and comic - scale of things, I am just a man.
15: What one man out of a U.S. Census Bureau @uscensusbureau? Just a man with a secret that needs to come out.
16: The whole can figure out what means, @WIRED and their article be damned
17: It is the point figure, as #aynrand knows, that determine the truth - not the faceless masses who scrape along behind them.
18: And cleaning up this mess is going to be a herculean task, not a four year tearing down. A thousand year task, if you get my meaning.
19: But the we of the #altright mean what we say, even if it is in code as thick as the #enigma machine stored in the #enigmamuseum .2: So, I begin again: this is New York - though there are still some pockets where the pronunciation is mangled.20: After all we all know the secrets - of moving the #pound and #libor, and #bitcoin with #gold together.
21: Even the #POTUS Press advisor, @KellyannePolls needs to speak in code - though she look good, there are things even she can't say.
22: In the #UK it is a little bit different - the writer know not to take connections the #PrimeMinister May and @rupertmurdoch seriously.
23: So don't cowed, comrades - there is more than #TheFirst100DaysToDoList , for @realDonaldTrump !

24: Whatever the #queer and #LGBT say about the #LGBTrights and other things. But let me tell my story...
