"Black Box," which will also be published in the magazine and features a character from Good Squad, is being tweeted in installments, one per minute for an hour, starting nightly at 8 p.m., the Local Fort Greene reports. The tweeting began on Thursday, and continues through Saturday.
Egan told the [The New Yorker] that she wrote the story, "Black Box," specifically for Twitter to be followed by readers on laptops, smartphones and other electronic devices. "This is not a new idea, of course, but it’s a rich one—because of the intimacy of reaching people through their phones, and because of the odd poetry that can happen in a 140 characters," Egan said.
