Nano-Flash: Twitter Fiction

"Tell us a Science Fiction, Fantasy, or Horror story in under 140 characters. Other than that, we’re just looking for good stories," explains the submissions page for Thaumatrope, presumably the first spec-fic twitterzine. A twitterzine specializes in fiction that will fit in one twitter message: 140 characters, including spaces, about 24 words or so. They pay pro rates, 5-cents per word, so you'll earn $1.20 per accepted submission. Unfortunately, they only accept submissions via Federal Express...no, that was a joke. This should generate some good fun. I suggest they develop an online thesaurus of short words.

Cool, Jake.

Just a quick google confirms that there is a bit of interest in haiku in the twitter community. Proper haiku is automatically twitter-compatible.
