In 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.”
