We are going to write a social science fiction story using Twitter. Please tweet the next lines of one of the following stories — @socialscificfac is our handle. We will update the story as often as we can. We will select our estimate of the best tweet continuations we have received — but we can be overruled if a particular tweet has been re-tweeted a gazillion times….
If you start this and find that you do not want to wait for the crowd-developed story to emerge, then please write the whole story and submit it to:
Story 1: The story is called #hopeunderthebed
Here is the first line:
I stuffed the loan payment overdue notice into the box containing the folder with the “diploma released when payment received” document.
Story 2: #ifnofirejustfireanyhow
In 3 days Cal lost his male cousin, his cop brother, and his teacher sister. They died because even when we only think we see fire — we fight it with fire.
