It Was the Best of Tweets, It Was the Worst of Tweets

frenchrevolution.jpgIn honor of Bastille Day, author Matt Stewart will publish “The French Revolution” entirely on Twitter, estimating it will take 3,700 tweets to micro-blog his 480,000-character debut novel–tweeting at the revolutionary rate of one tweet every 15 minutes.

In comparison, Charles Dickens serialized his French revolutionary novel, “A Tale of Two Cities,” in a series of weekly installments. For readers less inclined to read an entire novel on Twitter, Stewart has a Scribd version as well.

Here’s more from his website: “‘The French Revolution’ is an epic San Francisco tale, exploring the haywire extremes of the French Revolution within the microcosm of a dysfunctional family. Zany, tragic, imaginative, funny—the incisive wit and wordplay of Junot Diaz meets the multi-layered precision plotting of Jonathan Franzen.”
