A Full Story, Tweet by tweet

Jennifer Egan, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, started last Thursday to publish a new story, Black Box, in the form of Tweets on the New Yorker Fiction Twitter account.

Egan will publish a single line every minute for an hour from 8-9 p.m. on a daily basis for 10 nights till June 2.

The author said that the story was originally twice its present length. Egan spent nearly a year rewriting and revising the story to fit Twitter’s character-counting, 140 character. She wanted to make sure the final version would have each line with the specific Twitter character limit.
