Twitter Fiction Festival


US social networking giant Twitter is inviting creative writers to come up with new methods of telling stories online for an online fiction festival hosted by the microblogging site.

Users who flag up the hashtag #twitterfiction from November 28 will find “creative experiments” in storytelling, ranging from a short story in tweets to Twitter chats or live tweeting of events.

Twitter proposes: “How will you work with our real-time global platform, where anyone can contribute to your story at any moment?” Content for the hashtag will be selected by a group of creative writers.

Running for a limited period of five days, the festivals aims to boost Twitter’s fictional content and highlight the possibilities for creative users to invent new ways of playing and sharing through the service.
