Space travel’s in my blood / And there ain’t nothing I can do about it / Long journeys wear me out but / I know I can’t tweet without it

the more i tweet you / the more i want you / somehow this feeling / just grows and grows
rise up this morning / smiled with the rising sun / three little birds / tweet by my door step
darling you got to let me know / should i tweet or should i go? / if you say that you are mine / i’ll be here ’til the end of time
well sometimes i go out, by myself, and i tweet across the water
and i read all the things, of what you’re doing, and in my head i paint a picture
i could have been someone / well so could anyone / you took my tweets from me / when i first found you
i kept them with me babe / i put them with my own / can’t twitter all alone / i’ve built my dreams around you
My other Twitter-based game at the moment is slightly more elaborate. TwitStory involves using other people’s tweets as the basis for a short story.
Some terminology… ‘twitsurf’ is a verb meaning to browse Twitter by clicking on interesting looking pics in people’s ‘following’ list.
The rules for TwitStory are as follows:
- Play using the Web interface to Twitter.
- Find a starting point, e.g. by twitsurfing 5 or 6 times at random.
- Copy and paste one of the tweets visible on the current page. (Optionally note down the Twitter name of the person who made the tweet).
- Now twitsurf once or twice (your choice). Note that protected updates pages can be skipped over at no cost.
- Copy and paste another tweet.
- Repeat until you have up to 15 tweets that make a story.
- Reaching a dead-end, i.e. a person with no followers, marks the end of the story.
I’ve tried this twice so far. Not sure about the results but, hey, I’ve heard of people doing stupider things on the Internet!
