Rick Moody and the Twitter Backlash.


The jury’s in. Rick Moody and EL’s experiment to post a short story via Twitter is being called one of the more epic fails of literature in the technological age. But that’s not what I’m interested in.

Should Moody and EL be praised for their experimentation? For breaking ground in getting literary fiction out to people via new media outlets?

Or should they be reviled for trying to shoe-horn a short story into the wrong format for the sake of publicity?
