Coping with a Twitter Slowdown

twittercrash.jpgTwitter has been limping along this afternoon, much to the dismay of all the literary tweeters in the audience. Mike Cane summed it up: “Twitter is NOT WORKING PROPERLY. Getting near-zero tweets. So if you wonder why I’m not saying anything, this is why.”

To help you cope with this Twitter problem, GalleyCat has compiled some Twitter-sized links. First up, Electric Literature released a one-sentence animation of a Lydia Davis short story.

The New Yorker found a bit of DIY publicity.

Edward Champion counted the literary allusions in Stephen King‘s new novel.

The Wall Street Journal looks at the Iron Man 2 trailer, an adaptation after this GalleyCat editor’s heart.
