Can Twitter Help Publishers Reinvent Books?

Twitter's 140 characters may seem limiting for authors, but the platform is using rich media, images, and experimental prose to remake storytelling.

very interesting:


"..Another winner from last year was Ranjit Bhatnagar. The New York-based artist wasn’t an official selection, but his Pentametronaccount became a surprise hit of the festival. Bhatnagar, who’s spent the last 20 years building experimental language projects, created an algorithm trolling for tweets in iambic pentameter, and then retweeting them.

“Twitter is all language,” says Bhatnagar, who runs several accounts merging math and literature. Pentametron’s real-time sonnets got him the attention of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, whose Twitter feed he took over and ran for a time...."

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, March 15, 11:25 AM

Great exercise for the classroom to build multi-character interactions engaging lots of students, simultaneously giving those of us not born to the cloth practice at wrapping our heads around new ways of approaching storytelling.  Seems simple until you try it.

How will the craft of storytelling change in the future? | Cross-Platform Storytelling | Scoop.it

"The question was posted on Quora, inviting a wealth of answers. Here's mine (invited to vote up if you think it's worth being more visible): The simple answer is - it won't, since it has no reason to. The only change required is having more outstanding storytellers than there are right now."

Great point Gregg and thanks for sharing this fascinating discussion on Quora.


Readers, I agree with Gregg. The craft of storytelling really won't change significantly as time goes on. What's needed are folks willing to take the time to master the craft.

Between the Lines: Storytelling in the New Landscape - i-Docs | Cross-Platform Storytelling | Scoop.it

"This session (...) looked at the relationship between technology and storytelling, it’s function within the creation of non-linear narratives and the continued role of “old” storytelling telling methods." I-Docs

 

"Each technological change in filmmaking has influenced the way stories are crafted. Adapting to these new technologies has repeatedly been presented as a revolutionary new way of storytelling. The first films shot with handheld cameras allowed unprecedented access to events, and later, digital cameras made it cheaper to produce films. Now, with opportunities offered by new media, stories can be told in a non-linear fashion through different platforms, or made interactive. Do these new technologies truly revolutionize the way we document the world, or do they merely change the relationship between the maker and the viewer? Do the old methods of storytelling still apply to interactive or non-linear documentaries?

Video storytelling: conflict is a must have in biz stories

Why do so many videos made by companies fall flat? In many cases, it's because they lack the essential component of storytelling - conflict.

Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)'s curator insight, February 26, 12:39 AM

This article made so much sense to me that I had to sit down and listen to the podcast right away.  Here's some comments that stood out for me:

  • Brands are struggling.  What's missing is conflict.

  • Need to inject conflict without damaging the brand.

  • Too many provide a false picture – everything is wonderful.

  • Have to (provide and) overcome the conflict or the listener won’t like it.

  • Conflict – get as close as possible to death.

  • Conflict – best kind of universal truth.


How to find your org/brands conflict?  Need to take a softer look at the notion of conflict (the term conflict brings up certain imagery, feelings).  Conflict is simply something to overcome.  Ask yourself - do we want to be a company who wants to overcome things?


There's also a great made-up example (Donut Corp) provided of how an organization could find it's conflict.

William Uricchio on Engagement | Open Doc Lab at MIT

William Uricchio on Engagement | Open Doc Lab at MIT | Cross-Platform Storytelling | Scoop.it

excerpt:

 

"Less of an ‘artifact’ (in the sense that films tend to be once completed and shown) than an ongoing forum for documentation, reflection and exchange, projects like Sandy and Hollow point to a new and largely unexplored dimension of the ‘new’ documentary to which we need to attend.  Their civic character holds great potential, providing ways for communities to share knowledge and experience, and offering citizens incentives for sustained participation.

 

(...) the interactive character of these documentaries, their requirement that the user ‘wander’ or ‘play’, adds a distinctive opportunity to engage by making participants co-constructors of the text itself, rather than ‘mere’ readers. The user’s interests presumably direct the process of negotiation through the documentary environment. "

The Emotional Cycle of Digital Interactivity

The Emotional Cycle of Digital Interactivity | Cross-Platform Storytelling | Scoop.it

"I’ve long maintained that phenomena like “social media” are behaviors, more so than channels or applications or types of media inventory, what have you. There are extrinsic factors at play like market movements, various forms of scarcity, supply and demand levers, etc. and there are intrinsic factors like human emotion that are rarely, if ever, discussed when it comes to making investments in these types of ventures."

 

My colleague and fellow curator Jan L. Gordon originally shared this post and I thought it would be great to include here also.

 

Why? Because effective storytelling is about conveying emotions. Yet when we share our biz stories, what emotions should we be focusing on? It is easy to default to hope. Or confidence. 

 

What I like about this chart and post is that it addresses the common emotions people experience as they interact and share online -- both positive and negative.

 

It seems logical to me that in knowing this information, we should be paying attention to whether the emotions we are conveying in our biz stories online are connecting with the emotional experiences of people. This chart can help us figure it out.

 

Now, I wouldn't want to be limited to slavishly sticking to this chart. But it is a good place to begin!

 

As the author, Gunther Sonnenfeld says, "I believe that any great technology venture (any great company, really) must provide doors to perception and discovery that look well beyond transactional or even relationship benefits to some degree." Yeah! Treating business storytelling as purely transactional or relational is only the first rung of effectiveness.

 

And don't forget to read the comments at the end of the post. They are chock full of great insights and discussion about online storytelling, branding, and emotion.

 

Thank you Jan for finding this gem! @janlgordon
