Twitter experiment

I am a co writer of the next best selling novel! OK, maybe not quite the best selling and not quite a novel yet :-) Let me start from the beginning:

Twitter user dcannell announced:
Feel like helping, we need your next 140 characters, your creativity, together writing the next best seller
A story built 140 characters at a time. If you are a twitter users...log on and add your line...add a hashmark #tothesky and I will add your line to the story.
So I did :-)
In case you have no idea what I am writing about, Twitter is another form of social networking and micro-blogging that enables its users to send and read other users' updates known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length. Here you can find a great video explaining it in "plain English"

Are you ready to pick up the challenge? Hop on Twitter and add your 140 words to the story.

See below the Twitter challenge announced via YouTube video. I think that this kind of fun, collective and creative writing could be a cool activity in the classroom.

PS. To better see all the people I follow on Twitter I am using Twitterrific, twitter app for Mac OS, iPhone and iPod touch. You can download it here:
