Black Box

With each tweet, I was threatened to read the next. I felt as if the narrator was deliberately speaking to me. So, I listened. I became the beauty in the story and felt as though if each line was not as carefully read as the last I would be in jeopardy; more importantly, I would not know my ending.

One thought on “Black Box

  1. Reading the Twitter version, I also felt an ominous and threatening theme behind each tweet, as the stakes and danger increased as I read on. Each individual sentence felt like a dodged bullet, and after reading the New Yorker version as well, I found that the first version was much more impactful because of the pause between reading each tweet, and the anticipation of not knowing where it would end, because you could only see a few tweets on the screen at a time.
