NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – Imagine writing a novel. On Twitter. 140 characters at a time.

“Testing testing 1-2-3. Is this thing on? Guess I just start typing. Is that how this works?”

So begins “Tweetheart.” Yes, it’s a novel being written on Twitter.

The author is Doug Sovern, a reporter at WCBS 880’s sister station KCBS radio in San Francisco.

He talked with WCBS 880 anchor Steve Scott.
