Novella on Twitter featured on TVO literacy series

Today’s Times Colonist features a short article by Ben Kaplan, of Canwest News Service about literacy and the adaptation of the publishing industry to current technology.

“In the ever-expanding world of Twitter, the publishing industry is grappling with a question: what exactly is fit to print? “I get a bit frozen on Twitter,” admits author Tish Cohen, speaking of the omnipresent platform that allows users to talk about anything they want as long as they do it in 140 characters or less..’

The novella is being released as a daily stream of eight ornine tweets a day.

The release is tied in with the TVO documentary Emprire of the Word.
