Have you heard of the storyella? What about twiterature? Been following #TwitterFiction? Or how about WRAC’s very own #endthisstory? Claire Armitstead, writing for The Guardian, asks “Has Twitter given birth to a new literary genre?” She notes that the key to successful Twitter fiction is connectivity; writers reaching to the past, to other users, then spreading their story out over a day, a week. My take on Armitstead’s question is not about a new genre, rather how does Twitter alter – remix, if you will – storytelling in general?
