I've started a Twitter account with one goal in mind: Creating the perfect account. So I'm writing 140 entries, each 140 chars exactly, while all entries regard one thing only: Twitter itself. This is an experiment in writing, user experience, social media theory, and useless fun. Check out 140x140. RT your support! :)

To truly make it perfect you can't follow more than 140 people, and you have to block anyone that come after 140 followers.

I posted a twitter-related project a couple posts down.

While I will have a lot more than 140 Social Media Marketer tweets, we are planning to get the best 140 illustrated.

Gave a you a follow.

How can we retweet it if you've used up all the characters?

flatluigi, you just steal the tweet.

Actually, in these cases I prefer people just take the whole thing, then do a, "That last tweet was by X" sort of thing, but usually they end up using abbreviations, and whatnot, and the original is totally ruined. I'm not sure why people doing point back to the original with a tiny URL and say, "This comment by 140x140 is cool because...."

Now we just hope Twitter's database doesn't start randomly eating your existing posts as it did with my acct. :)
