Twitter: A Novel Way to Publish a Novel

TheFrenchRevolutionCover.jpgSlow and steady wins the race, especially if you’re trying to write a 480,000-character novel 130 characters at a time.

Matt Stewart released The French Revolution Tuesday. But absent commitment from any publishers, he and his agent released it via Twitter, TechCrunch reported.

Stewart has help for the approximately 3,700 tweets it will take to “publish” the novel: A programmer helped him to automate the process, according to TechCrunch.

For those who dont have the patience to wait for 3,700 tweets (Stewart had reached around 80 at the time of this posting), The French Revolution is also available free-of-charge on Scribd or for $1.99 on Amazon’s Kindle.
