Seattle Noir is another Twitter-based storytelling project. Microstorytelling, really, as each bit of story consists of a single Tweet. Said Tweets combine noir fiction (plot and/or style) with life in Seattle, flagged by the hashtag #SeattleNoir.
Twitter continues to be a lively ground for new digital storytelling. Soon we won’t call this “new” any more.
Noir has been a digital storytelling theme for a while. Small Town Noir did a fine job of combining local archival research with blogging. Alan Levine (of course) offers a neatly unsettling noir through Cowbird.
