David Mitchell To Put Next Work On Twitter

Posted at 8:26AM Monday 14 Jul 2014

Cloud Atlas author David Mitchell is to publish his next work on Twitter.

The British writer has penned a short story, titled The Right Sort, in 140-character instalments.

It will be serialised in clusters of about 20 tweets at a time over the next seven days. In total there will be 280 Tweets.

But while embracing the artistic potential of social media, Mitchell himself is not a tweeter and had to open a Twitter account for the project.
