Comments on: Writing a novel? Just tweet it http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2009/08/09/writing-a-novel-just-tweet-it/ Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Gaurav http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2009/08/09/writing-a-novel-just-tweet-it/comment-page-1/#comment-10810 Thu, 08 Oct 2009 05:29:57 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/india/?p=1676#comment-10810 twitter and others are no doubt nice, but I always wanted to bring in a concept to microblogging !

I hereby post a Review-Request for www.emote.in ,

A microblogging service; which is a platform to –
1. Make yourself heard, comment on news, stories and current affair.
2. Share your experiences, memories and events with your friends and family.
3. Connect with different people with similar emotional attributes as yours.
(eg: if attrocities on animals make you sad, connect with others who share the same feeling)
4. Jot-down your experiences. You usually have so many things to say – a constant stream of thoughts, comments and observations running through your head continuously.
5. Last but not the least, has everything (and much more) that twiiter has.

6. A wonderful timeline coming shortly (in few weeks)

Writing a story is tough enough. Writing it in 140 character bursts must be challenging – and fun:)

Adding another layer of novelty through Twiction, Twister et al only adds to its intrigue. For sustainable literary interest, however, 140-character bites just won’t suffice. But if a famous author (I hate to mention Rowling) chooses to twitter about Potter, I’m sure the market will be a-jitter with buzz!

So the medium gets a total thumbs-down from me.

The idea of 140 character story is quite intriguing.

Though it seems like a great idea, without any revenue source it will fizz out.
