Home of the Shortest Stories Ever Told!

Fiction that fits in a Twitter post.

Can it be true? Can you really create a work of fiction in a 140 character burst?
Judge for yourself! Read the short stories on this page and see how much fiction can be packed into such a tiny space.
Each of these fictional pieces is a self-contained story.

  • Haunted by a nagging thought that there was something he was meant to do today, surrounded by family wanting him to wake from the coma.

  • "Anything to say before I pass sentence?” “Yes, M’Lud. By paying for bootleg DVDs with counterfeit cash I was merely an agent of karma”

  • Martians do exist. They spent millennia perfecting camouflage, anticipating our attempts to invade their privacy. We are lousy neighbours

  • Teachers said I'd never amount to anything. Classmates called me puny. Look at me now! In the news. On TV. On the FBI's most wanted list.

  • I like the company and love the food. I think I'm having fun. But part of me is dreading the inevitable squabble over the bill.

  • She smiled in her sleep. Dreaming that they would be together forever. He smiled through his day. Knowing they would be together forever.

  • Through flu’s delirium I finally understand. As far as Mother Nature is concerned, humans are the virus. And she’s looking for the cure.

  • He was a prison guard. She was visiting her incarcerated husband. They fell in love instantly and shared three to five great years together.

  • The masked man robbed dozens of local banks - all on Thursdays. Apparently this is when the nursing home let him out to visit his family.

  • They say the Man On The Moon can see The Great Wall. What does he think? Marvelous Wonder or a scar on the planet's face?
