I set out to write this Twitter book with Dom and we started writing some things down. I took a different approach and began writing entire chapters in a few hours so we have some raw text to work with. Joking around with Dom over coffee and I brought up that after 34,500 twitter posts (tweets), I may have started writing sentences in under 140 characters. I did some testing in Microsoft Word and it’s true. My sentences in the book are 90% under 140 characters.
This is very interesting to me as I didn’t try to do this and after 2 years on Twitter it’s just how I write. I may work to making the Twitter Book a 140 character book. Sentences written under 140 characters and no more than 140 pages. We’ll see but in the meantime I’m going to try to get my tweets under 120 characters so I’ll have room for hashtags and retweets.
