I saw on the news last night that some blowhard politician, known for drawn-out speeches, is now on Twitter. People were chuckling that it would be hard for him to keep his texts to 140 words. Hah, I thought, someone should tell him about 100 Words. I am not on Twitter, but I was wondering, do people do creative writing on there? Are there masterpieces of 140-word authorship doing the rounds on Twitter? In a fast-paced world, will there be serial novels in 140-word chapters? It rather meshes with my aspiration for the perfectly distilled phrase.
