School is officially back in session for millions of students around the world. The start of a brand-new school year brings creative lesson plans, fresh textbooks all new reading lists filled with classic novels, such as George Orwell’s “1984,” F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby,” J.D. Salinger’s “The Catcher in the Rye” and Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird.”

Thanks to HuffPost Comedy‘s weekly hashtag game, Twitter users put a modern twist on classic works of literature with #MakeClassicNovelsModern. “Charlotte’s Web” was given a technological upgrade, “Little Women” was combined with a feminist movement and “1984” was once again compared to the current political state of America. The silly revisions would no doubt transform any teacher’s syllabus.

Take a look at how social media modernized some classic novels below:
