I always kinda doubted a popular novel could effectively weave in a tweeted exchange. However…on her blog, Ilona Andrews presents a twitter exchange between Kate, Curran and Jim. It made me smile, and I realised it worked because the characters are so well established, so strong, that Ilona brings them effectively through the terse medium of Twitter.
The question, then, is could a tweeted exchange develop/reveal character or does it lean on the fully expressed text around it?
[I’ve had a couple of posts recently ref’ing Ilona’s blog. Well, I’m compulsively checking it, waiting for the release of Magic Bleeds]
