One story, 140 authors December 17, 2007Posted by davegoblog in Blogging, Books, Future, Pop Culture, Technology.
Imagine writing a story with 139 other people where everyone can only use up to 140 characters each. The entries are submitted via Twitter and compiled into an evolving tale. That’s the idea behind Twittories, which was started last Tuesday with Twittory 1: The Darkness Inside. It flows pretty well for having plot twists every few sentences, and I’m still unsure what to make of the story itself as well as the method for creating it. The conception technique makes me think of the “process” used to produce the mystery film footage in William Gibson’s novel, Pattern Recognition (2003).
I’ve signed up for Twittory 2, which has no title yet and still needs about 40 more people to begin.
