Twitter Event: #9898 – an SF Experiment on Twitter

September 27, 2012

Stand-up comedians experiment in night clubs. They try out different things on small audiences, to see how people react to it. They try different things on different nights to hone their act and to see how the audience reacts.

Seems to me that Twitter is a great place for an SF author to do the same thing. One such experiment is going on right now, called #9898.

I’m not going to tell you anything about it. Go read it. It’s being updated daily, and may in the future be updated weekly (we’ll see how the experiment goes).

If you’re reading this long after it was written, check out the tag: #9898.

Here’s my Twitter, check it out: Vision Etc.

Plucked: A Palindromic Twitter Story

September 19, 2012

You know how tweets in the Twitterverse are read in the opposite order than the one they were written in? The newest tweets are found on top, to be read first, and the older ones at the bottom, to be read last.

I invented a new story form in Twitter, one that solves that problem: A palindromic twitter story. It can be read from top to bottom or bottom to top and it will read exactly the same. Here it is. Enjoy.
