The Twitter Review

Megan McArdle – “I wonder if the rise of twittering as perhaps the briefest form of literature known to man could lead to a new kind of book review. Rather than have a book reviewed by a single person in 1000 words or less, what would it look like if 40 different reviews offered 25 words or less?”

    Something similar is being done over at nerdfighters.com (the online community run by YA author John Green and his ecotech blogging brother Hank Green). They call it the blurbing book club and reviews have to be 10 words or less. So far, they’ve done 13 Little Blue Envelopes and Slaughterhouse 5.
