Last week we asked the Twitterverse to send us short stories that made the most of Twitter’s new 280 character limit. We couldn’t have predicted the deluge of brilliantly crafted tweets to come.
Have a read of our top ten below, or scroll through the #meanjin280 thread to see all of the entries in their full glory.
If you enjoyed reading the tweets, don’t forget that you can subscribe to Meanjin to read many pieces even longer than 280 characters! Until December 1, all print subscriptions are eligible to win one of three lifetime subscriptions. As a special summer bonus, all new print subscribers will also receive a free Meanjin tote bag designed by Oslo Davis.
