"On May 6, 2009, I began a literary experiment: Was it possible to maintain a narrative structure and attract a reading public in Twitter, live-tweeting 140 characters at a time? Posting a new "tweet" twice a day, every day, never missing a deadline, I completed his twitter mystery or "twitstery" in 15 months. The 140 character limit of Twitter required intensive wordsmithing, creative editing, and the omission of punctuation in some cases and a lot of counting. To succeed I adopted the narrative strategies of cartoon artists Al Capp, Chester Gould and Will Eisner as well as canonical mystery writers Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and Robert B. Parker."
