Twitter inspired eBook | Twitter Highlight

Twitter inspired the world in 2012 in many ways.

But the inspiration didn't only limit to the Twitterverse. Creative people took the inspiration to outside world as well.

For instance, one American author released her tweet-sized novel.

The American author of A Visit from the Goon Squad had an online hit in April when she published "Black Box", a short story she'd written for the New Yorker in novel fashion.

The novel appeared in miniature, one- or two-sentence chapters, each short enough to be tweeted. And to keep the Twitter aesthetics and sentiment intact, used a publishing format, wherein 8 small Boxes occupied each page. Just enough to accommodate 8 Tweets or 8 chapters. Yes, the notebook for the special format came from a special notebook, sold by Muji, which had eight small rectangles on every page.

Lets see how Twitter inspires the creative minds in 2013.

About the Book:

'Close your eyes and slowly count backward from ten.'

America, the near future. A young spy on a mission logs her observations. The result is an intense thriller, and a minute dissection of the experience of a woman whose beauty is also her camouflage, for whom control relies on submission: a woman whose success - whose life - depends on being seen and not seen.

Originally published online via Twitter by @NYerFiction, Jennifer Egan's first new fiction since the phenomenal success of A Visit From the Goon Squad is a taut, compulsive work of unrelenting genius. --------
