I Tweet, Therefore I Am
by Robert K. Blechman
“Though reality is not copy protected, fair-use stipulations do apply.”
“I Tweet, Therefore I Am”, a laugh-out-loud comic mystery novel originally posted in real time tweets on Twitter launches as a Kindle eBook on Monday, January 16, 2017. A creative innovator of the Twitter Fiction movement, Robert K. Blechman’s novels are live-tweeted mystery narratives, now gathered into book form. “I Tweet, Therefore I Am” is compelling, entertaining, and shows off what can be done in the 140-character form with style and mastery. With send-ups of the mystery genre, social media conventions and cell phone behavior, “I Tweet, Therefore I Am” is a cornucopia of word play and comic misdirection stuffed with punny dialogue, clever character conditions, and a total lack of adherence to the old “rules” of storytelling. Robert K. Blechman’s delight in the language shows in every tweet – that is to say, every thread of the story. His plot is tight, tingling, and diverting.
The three books of The Twitstery Twilogy (ie. Twitter Mystery) depict the exploits of the world’s only tweeting detective, unreliable narrator that he is. He tweets his experiences in real time , and the fact that he tells his story in tweets, that is 140 characters at a time, shapes his interpretation of the crimes he investigates.
