If Shakespeare Had Twittered

Here's what the first nine lines of the "To be or not to be" passage would've looked like had Shakespeare crammed them into the 140 characters of Twitter. Love the "2 die, 2 zzz" part.   

"2 be, or nt 2 be: tht's the q:
Whether 'tis nblr in the mnd 2 sffr
The slngs & rrws of trgs frtn,
Or 2 tk rms gnst a sea of trbls,
by ppsng end thm? 2 die: 2 zzz;
No mr &  by a zzz 2 say we end
The hrt-ache & the thsnd ntrl shcks
That flsh is hr 2, 'tis a cnsmmtn
Devoutly 2 be wsh'd. 2 die, 2 zzz;"
