Teju Cole Breaks Into Narrative on Twitter
from The WRITER
If you are active on Twitter, you know the powerful capability of relaying a message in 140 characters. The least effective tweets come off as PR. The most effective are truly narrative – concisely slender and muscular at the same time. Author Teju Cole took Twitter to a new level this week by releasing "A Piece of the Wall," an essay on immigration in approximately 250 tweets (or 4,000 words). Cole previously worked in the Twitter "genre" with his "small fates" project, based on a French style of newspaper micro-reporting.
