Six Word Festival Opens on Twitter

The inaugural Six Word Festival opened today on Twitter, and runs until September 26th.

For three days, a group of celebrities will post prompts on their Twitter feeds to elicit responses in the form of six-word tweets.

The participants include journalist A.J. Jacobs, chef Todd English, and the cast of Orange is the New Black.

The celebrities will pick the best tweets. Those six-word responses will be retweeted and collected on SixWordMemoirs.com.

Here’s more from the release

Six-Word Memoir began as a contest in collaboration with Twitter in 2006, asking people to tweet their response to a simple challenge: ‘Can you tell the story of your life in six words?’ Seven books and more than 700,000 Six-Word stories later, Six Words have become an easy and inspired form of engagement to get to the essence of anything.” What do you think?
