By now, most net-savvy people will probably have heard of the social networking site Twitter - a place to connect to people by posting 'tweets' of 140 characters or less.
Flash fiction is extremely popular at the moment, but sites like Twitter are proving a platform for even shorter stories. Tiny, tiny miniscule stories. And these kinds of stories are becoming quite trendy in todays fast-paced technology-driven world.
Here are three Twitter-based micro-zines which I follow. If you have a Twitter account, you might like to follow them too.
@SixWordStory - For sale: baby shoes, never worn. Supposedly Hemingway's best work. Tweet your six-word story to @sixwordstory now!
@VeryShortStory - Twitter sized fiction for your entertainment. Stories by @sean_hill. Feedback welcomed. Send me a noun and I'll use the ones that inspire me in a story. Thanks.
@TweetTheMeat - Twitter Horrorzine. Fear in 140 characters or less.
If you've come across any good ones, feel free to share them in the comments.
