    Really enjoyed reading this. There is such an art to micro-blogging. 140 chars make it so challenging to convey a genuine thought. This is what makes it fun for me. As I continue to experiment with micro-blogging through tweets, the challenge of context becomes pretty important. It is extremely tough to micro-blog on a controversial / delicate subject due to the nonpersonal nature of text. The emotional valence and overall intent of communication becomes lost in a lot of cases.

    Of course, one of the most famous micro-blogs of all time is by Hemingway, the master of the short sentence. “For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn.” You can read so much into those few words. A story from beginning to end. Packed with emotion and mystery.

    “As writer Robert McKee put it, “the archetypal story unearths a
    universally human experience, then wraps itself inside a unique,
    culture-specific expression.” Hmmm. I think it’s simpler than this…go see hero’s journey at http://www.clickok.co.uk/index4.html

    I am intrigued by this idea. This article has inspired me to develop tweets in more of a developing sequence, mimicking the structure of stories. Well written!

    & Jeannette; I see you quote Jennifer Aaker on your site – she really is one of the great thinkers on branding around these days. Have you ever seen her “five brand personalities” paper?

    Connor; love your last blog post. I need to share with my son – he’ll give you a good argument. Me, being old school, says get your nose out of your computer – he says it’s the modern teen’s socializing – that we had our hamburger stands. Britta Schell gave a great talk at PivotCon about how millennials use social media differently. If you can find her talk, you’d enjoy it (I think).  Cheers!

    Interesting idea!  Never thought of Twitter as a place to tell stories but I think I’ll try.  I have seen commercials on TV that tell  stories and am intrigued with them-always waiting for the next chapter (30 seconds).  Your ideas open up a  realm of possiblilities.  I will follow you on Twitter to see how it works.
