    Storytime on Twitter image

    If you come across some odd-looking, more-interesting-than-usual content in the world of Twitter tomorrow, don't be alarmed — it might be fiction. Starting March 12, right at the stroke of midnight, the #TwitterFiction Festival invites the world to celebrate storytelling 140 characters at a time.

    While the proposition may seem a bit limiting at first, it's really a great way to sharpen those short stroke writing chops and maximize efficiency.

    And since we love stories and storytime, we'll be telling a short story, one tweet at a time. Follow us on Twitter (@calgarylibrary) and use our story's #TwitterFiction hashtag #CPLtf to read along. Let the storytelling begin!
