 Picador Professor Tom Drury Posts Short Story on Twitter 

Submitted by Dr. Stefan Schubert on Mon, 07/31/2017 - 10:13

As part of his Picador Professorship at American Studies Leipzig, the author Tom Drury took over the professorship's official Twitter account for a few hours on July 26 and posted a series of tweets that, together, form the short story "The Patron Saint of Rabies." If you missed how the story was live-tweeted, you can still reread it in its entirety on Twitter.

Drury's short story continues an effort of trying to fuse social media and literature (for instance as so-called twitterature) that began with last semester's Picador Professor, Paul La Farge, whose short story "Hum" was also originally published as a series of tweets on the professorship's official account, back in December 2016.
