Two British journalists have launched a project to publish a book of comedy writing with all proceeds going to Comic Relief.
TwitterTitters was only announced on Twitter yesterday, yet already the power of the platform is very apparent.
They’ve found an illustrator, and writing submissions — which can include short stories, scripts, poems and prose — have been received.
Linda Jones said of the project, “I’m a fan of having a laugh. I’m a fan of short stories and I’m a fan of Twitter. This project brings the three together.
“The actual writing for this book will not be published on Twitter as it only allows 140 characters per tweet. But we’ll tweet calls for submissions, link to a dedicated blog on Twitter and ask people to help via Twitter.
“We’ll also publicise the anthology through the many writers on Twitter and hope to choose the stories to be included with the help of people kind enough to offer their expertise and/or time, again through Twitter.”
