A New Application for Twitter

In case you don't want to write a book on twitter, now you can come up with pithy one-sentence twitter burped about somebody else's novel and sum up some author's long, hard, life-long struggle to create art (thanks to Picador's new twitter book club).  

Awesome.

Or you could ghost write someone's twitter:

Or you could follow Ben Okri's example and write a novel, one tweet at a time. A sentence a day till it's done...

Wow. I bet that's every author's dream, to not only be reviewed by lots of people who aren't intelligent, but evaluated in the expansive space of 240 characters.
