#FridayFlash - Digital Afterlife

Aaron Thompson ‏@wunderkind54 4d
Going out tonight, people! Anyone else about?

Aaron Thompson ‏@wunderkind54 4d
Club so boring. Leaving early. Laterrrrsssss!

Aaron Thompson ‏@wunderkind54 4d
Maybe I'm paranoid but sure someone's following me.

Helena Thompson @pretty_n_pink 4d
Going to St Mary's. @wunderkind54 has been brought in.

Helena Thompson @pretty_n_pink 3d
Can't believe @wunderkind54 is gone. Love you and miss you, bro. RIP.

Billy O'Neill @18wheeler 3d
OMG just heard about @wunderkind54. Will miss you, mate.

Jem Reilly @princess_jem 2d
So sad to hear about @wunderkind54. Taken from us too young. You deserved better. Love you. x

Aaron Thompson ‏@wunderkind54 1d
It's so dark here.

Aaron Thompson ‏@wunderkind54 1d
Is anyone here?

Aaron Thompson ‏@wunderkind54 1d
I can see my parents. I keep talking to them but they don't see me. 

Billy O'Neill @18wheeler 1hr
@wunderkind54 Who do you think you are?

Helena Thompson @pretty_n_pink 2m
@wunderkind54 I don't know who you are but pretending to be my bro is pretty sick.

Aaron Thompson ‏@wunderkind54 2m
@pretty_n_pink It is me. I'm standing behind you - you're wearing your green skull T-shirt.

Aaron Thompson ‏@wunderkind54 2m
@pretty_n_pink I know who killed me.

I love Twitter stories. The abrupt change to wunderkind54's apparent death was wicked, as cryptic as the tweets from beyond.

That was a real tweet! (sorry about that couldn't resist.) ^_^ Poor wunderkind54 gone but not forgotten.

The last tweet left open some interesting implications!

I don't usually like Twitter stories but this one has just the right amount of mystery and suspense (and in so few words!) that it hooked me. Great one Icy!

Coming hot on the heels of your blog post about social media's mixed impact on connections and happiness, this is creepy in the extreme.

Margit Sage said...

I like the mystery...

Tim VanSant Writes said...

Nice one. I wonder if he can still tweet after his phone dies?

Icy Sedgwick said...

Glad everyone liked it.

Nicely done. Have you read @joe_hill's TWITTERING FROM THE CIRCUS OF THE DEAD?
