A while back I listened to a TED talk and then read an article about the A Visit from the Goon Squad author, Jennifer Egan, publishing a short story in the New Yorker via Twitter. Like the serial novels of the 18th and 19th centuries, she released her story 140 characters at a time.
Reading about Egan’s tweeted story, it hit me how new media forms force the evolution of new modes of communication and creativity.
Is it possible to construct a complete sermon out of 140 character parts?
Text: Genesis 32
#Twitterletics: In a tradition where names foreshadow everything its not clear from the name Jacob we’re meant to root for this character.
