The Tuesday Twitter Tale : Chris To His Friends

Tuesday, 1 February 2011

Christopher Bartholomew Cuthbertson-Smythe sighed. With a name that long he was never going to be the hero of a Twitter fiction story.

The Tuesday Twitter Tale is a weekly work of tweet-length fiction. It is posted here and on Twitter (along with the #vss - very short story - hash tag).


  1. Hah! Glad you proved him wrong!!!
    :-) Take care

  2. Perfect, Simon,

    All my twitter characters have names like Jo, or Ted.

    Is this a nod to Chris Bartholomew the editor of Static Movement?

  3. Old Kitty,

    About time he appeared!

  4. Deborah,

    I know : mine too. That's where the idea for this story came from.

    It wasn't intended to be a nod to that Chris Bartholomew or any other really.

  5. Hi my name is Christopher Bartholomew Cuthbertson-Smythe.

    I found your website after googling and googling and googling and googling myself.

    And now my twin brother, Andrew, lies dead.

    Thank you for releasing me from the torment of my anonymity.

    A shame it was a day too late *sob* for dear Andrew...


    Love it.

  6. Christopher,

    Very sorry to hear about Andrew. ABC (as we all called him of course) was such a man of letters. He will be sorely missed.


  7. Glad you enjoyed it Words Crafter! Actually, I can reveal Christopher will be appearing in another Twitter Tale this week ...


I'd love to know what you think.
