  1. Very interesting article, but I hazard to say this is the future of literature. I definitely think a “new” literature is developing from this, but just as history goes through cycles so too will its media. After stories become so compact and dense with blunt-force people will begin to treat more careful structures and patient prose as unusual and valuable. I think all this means is that a potentially new and exciting form of communication is available for artistic expression – it will no more out-mode novels than computer art surpassing brush and canvas (clearly two distinct expressions for visual art).


    • Keechelus,
      Excellent points. I agree that writing novels on Twitter, for example, will simply lead to a greater diversity in writing formats. Just another innovative way of reaching a technologically literate audience and quite possibly a motivational tool for teaching students to write in different formats. Thank you for your insight into this article.
