Alligators by Twitter on… Twitter?

Today is a big experiment. Flash Fiction Online is live-tweeting “Alligators by Twitter,” my story about a man whose house is attacked by burrowing alligators. He tells it to you via tweets from his cell.

Now FFO is making an actual Twitter feed for him. The story runs all today on the very medium it makes fun of.

You can follow @flashfictionmag to have the story delivered right into your tweet stream.

Alternatively, for people not on Twitter or who want to see the whole thing uninterrupted by what their best friends are eating and watching on TV, you can read it as it’s updated here:

Massive thanks go out to the people at FFO for adapting it like this. It should be a lot of fun.


  1. I read your story on Flash Fiction online and loved it. I followed the link on their site to your blog. Good stuff, keep it coming.

  2. Thanks ellecee! I update every day and will do my best to keep it good.

  3. 10:56: Jabbing an alligator in eye with nightstick is more fun than you think.

    11:07: They ate my nightstick.
