Thank you to all who took the time to compose tweets during Eastercon 2012.
In the end hundreds of tweets were posted and we certainly achieved our objective of releasing people’s creative side – and then some!
Our intention was primarily to allow everyone to have some fun with this – whether as a contributor or as a reader.
However, we also set this up as a “competition” and we have spent the last few months reading them and discussing them and debating them and in the end we have chosen the following three tweets which stood out and so have achieved the accolade as our
Eastercon Tweetfiction Winners!
Australia remained upside-down and Greenland was nowhere to be seen, but Lily decided it was close enough and declared the world saved#TBSFA
As the last spaceship left earth, the dodo reemerged to turn down the heat. Mission accomplished. #TBSFA
I remember when this was all cities. #TBSFA
The following are just a taster of hundreds of others that were particularly worthy of note:
Colin Baker (via email)
"Do not press this!"? What could happen that's so bad? Here goes! !seog ereH ?dab os s'taht neppah dluoc tahW ?"siht sserp ton oD" #TBSFA
The contributions were varied; serious, humorous, thought provoking, poetic, ingenious and always entertaining. Many contributors provided multiple entries and complained of being totally absorbed by it and addicted to producing fiction tweets – mission accomplished!
We intend to produce a booklet containing more of the 1200+ tweets generated in the future so you can all catch up on some you may have missed during the con.
As a result of the very positive feedback we will be revisiting #tbsfa and later this year we will be triggering themed #tbsfa events – look out for the announcements and once again
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS
& THANK YOU TO ALL CONTRIBUTORS
