Because we surely are trying our luck.

And you just have to write 140 characters. Ok, its even less than that. Its Tim Burton’s Cadavre Exquis ( or Exquisite Corpse) – a technique used to collectively tell a story. Each contributor adds to the story in sequence, building on the last line revealed. This is part of Tim Burton’s movie celebration at Toronto International Film Festival.

All you need is a twitter account. And you have to contribute just 127 characters. Because #BurtonStory = 13 characters, is a must with every tweet.

And here are the basic details –

  • This story telling experiment runs November 22 – December 6, 2010
  • Tweet as often as you like
  • The best Tweets of the day will be selected to build the story
  • All selected Tweets can be viewed under “All Submissions”
  • Follow the story as it unfolds on the “Read the Story” tab
  • Inappropriate submissions will be blocked

And the opening line of the story is – Part 1 “Stainboy, using his obvious expertise, was called in to investigate mysterious glowing goo on the gallery floor #BurtonStory”.
