Session # 110 – Announcement

Here is my pitch for the April Fool’s Edition of The Session:

With the possible lifting of word sanctions on Twitter, the Dickensian multi-part tweets from the likes of Patton Oswalt may become a quaint relic of the past.

But in February, Ray Daniels, the man behind the Cicerone program used the platform for a thirteen Tweet theory about how many breweries, are too many and if craft beer could become like wine with consumers buying based on varietal and not producer. You can read his tweets HERE or if you have great eyesight check out the image below.

So, before the 140 letter limit is lost, how about us in the beer blogging realm take one last crack at “original” Twitter.

Some possible routes to take:
-write your own beer theory in multi-parts. Be it 1/15 or 1/20
-use Twitter for your own craft beer April Fool’s Day prank
-channel your inner web troll and go all negative on a topic
-debate or applaud the points made by Daniels in under 140 characters
-talk about brevity and how it affects writing about beer

You can do it on Twitter or on your own blog or both. Just no Instagram.
