Unwritten Stories Behind Tweetures

Unwritten Stories Behind Tweetures

My first tweet was a reply to Paulo Coelho. I had just read “The Alchemist”. It was therefore interesting to see his name on my screen. I already knew that the world was now in a new era of global communication. However, seeing direct responses from different people in all parts of the world were providing a further depth to understand this simple fact.

The above paragraph is from last year’s my tweetures. I just read an interview on Paulo Coelho’s new book, “Adultery”.

This year’s tweetures are shorter, they can be considered like very short face stories reminding some interactions lost in the sea of tweets.

I know technical specialists are working continuously on finding better ways to store, organize, process, access, and get use from data. But complex nature of human mind is preventing us from sailing on a still sea of ideas and thoughts. We always have storms in and between us.

We have a giant tool there, containing the answers for almost everything we want to know and help us in our ways.

But the tool is not standard for all people, for all questions and answers. Individual and different answers exist for each seeker, each question, and each volunteer stepping forward to help. A very complex organism of thoughts and ideas, acts and facts, rises and falls, hope and despair.

I wish tweetures could have written at least several stories on the power of communication.


The following are some of the tweetures.

@Porter_Anderson @NathanBransford Dialogues are difficult.Slang even more.Trapped between spoken and written,today&future.#amwriting

@mehmetarat2000 Many good guides out there on dialogue writing, though. Keep at it. Bests with your work. @NathanBransford

Mehmet Arat @mehmetarat2000 11 Jun 2013
@Porter_Anderson @NathanBransford Dialogue should be true for novel as Nathan says, and strong to keep story alive in time. #amwriting

Porter Anderson @Porter_Anderson 11 Jun 2013
@mehmetarat2000 Very well put (by you and by @NathanBransford), indeed.

@aallemanwrites Hi Arleen. Thanks for quotes. They can tell both nothing and everything. Can they tell how to manage “trillions of events”?

Arleen Alleman @aallemanwrites 28 May 2013
@mehmetarat2000 Fortunately, we all have only to manage our own events, do our best, and hope others do the same.

@MAOrthofer “readers concerned with questions of language(s)” All humans should be so, specially if they are not understood.

Michael Orthofer @MAOrthofer Nov 26
@mehmetarat2000 *should be*, yes — but too often not the case (especially in monolingual-tending US)
