In August I challenged myself to post one piece of Twitterature up a week, inspired by friend and author Liss Macklin, her being the one who initially switched me on to the microfiction. Some of you may be asking “What on earth is ‘twitterature’?” well, Wikipedia calls it:
Twitterature (a portmanteau of Twitter and literature) is literary use of the microblogging service of Twitter. It includes various genres, including aphorisms, poetry and fiction written by individuals or collaboratively.
The 140-character maximum imposed by the medium provides a creative challenge.
