Almost a week ago, I began an experiment in, for the lack of a better term, Twitter Storytelling. I've created a Twitter account [@NoWedgiesForMe] for Alexander, the central protagonist in my novel, "My Life at the Bottom of the Food Chain." I know that there are numerous experiments going on that are along these lines, and I liked the idea of creating a supplementary "reality" for the universe by the book and it's upcoming follow-up.
The big question - will people actually see these tweets? I don't usually search back on your earlier tweets - I'll read what you tweet now. Do I need to make Alexander a habitual repeat tweeter, so that people will actually see these? Or, do I simply use the Twitter account as a basis to create updates elsewhere (here, or on the Facebook page, for example). If a reader is more interested, then they can follow on Twitter directly. What do you think?
The Story So Far:
As winter vacation looms, Alexander gets nervous that bullies might plan something on the last school day before the holidays...
