For the inaugural Twitter Fiction Festival, held online from November 28th-December 2nd, 2013 with a culminating live showcase at the New York Public Library, Code Meet Print hosted the online “Very Short Story Contest.” Very short stories (hashtag #vss on Twitter) are micro-fiction pieces where an entire narrative is contained in one single 140-character tweet.

In collaboration with Twitter and serialized fiction startup Plympton, we created veryshortstory.net, which captured all tweets sent out during the festival containing the hashtag “#vss,” and highlighting the most recent and the most popular (by way of retweet) micro-stories in real-time.
