#Story140 – Crowdsourcing Improv! Fun!

I had an idea that I’d like to get going.  You remember the old Improv game where there is a story and you pass it on to the next person, that person says a sentence or two, then you pass it on to the next person, who adds another couple sentences, and so on until you have a story?

I think that can be pretty cool if we do it with Twitter (and funny/fun if you think about it)!  I kicked around already with @winebratsf who is game (of course).

Just need a theme and then we can kick off a TweetMeme that’ll be a little less boring and a little easier than some of the others.

Here’s how it would work:

First person (me, I guess) posts a theme/topic blog post and tweets it out there.  The tweet should be “#story140 theme <date> <blog post link>”  (update: Forget the theme, lets just do it!)
*  First person then kicks it off with a tweet “<first sentence> #story140 @<nextperson>”
*  If you are the <next person>, then you Tweet “<next sentence> #story140 @<nextperson>”
*  And so on, and so on

Then a search on that tag should develop into something pretty interesting.  Think it over!  I’ll Tweet out the first topic and sentence and I’m more then a little open to suggestions!!!  Tweet topic idea or comment an idea to me on this post.

Cheers and let have a little Friday fun.  🙂

  1. When will you start the story, Joel? May we presume that one person can add to the story more than one time, but perhaps not with consecutive tweets?


  2. I didn’t catch the Twitter handle on the last commenter. The more the merrier!!! Leave ur Twitter ID and you’ll be first up next week.
