Twitter Medium for Short Story

‘Cloud Atlas’ Author Releases New Short Story Entirely On Twitter

Cloud Atlas author David Mitchell has released an original short story entirely on Twitter in order to promote his new book, The Bone Clocks.

Mitchell, who rarely uses the Twitter account, started tweeting the story on July 14. Throughout the course of six days and roughly 270 tweets, he released “The Right Sort,” a short story that takes place in the same fictional world as his upcoming novel.

The short story follows a young boy who takes some of his mother’s Valium and narrates the resulting drug trip. Mitchell notes that, in a way, Twitter is the perfect medium for the character’s jumble of disjointed drug-fueled thoughts.
