Got into an argument with a writer…

…about using Twitter to present a novel.

I can’t believe there’s even anything to argue about.

Presenting a book in 140 character chunks in reverse chronological order defeats the whole purpose of a novel which is to immerse a reader in the story.

You could probably cut a movie into eight-second slices and post them on Youtube (in reverse chronological order) over a three-week period but that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea.
