Neil Gaiman to publish audiobook based on Tweets


Yup, you got that right.

Popular science fiction writer Neil Gaiman is starting a project with a thousand tweets provided by Twitter users and compiling them to create an audiobook.

The first line will be tweeted at midnight EDT Monday and can be found at Others who want their tweets to be included can also direct their tweets to “#bbcawdio.”

“When roughly 1,000 tweets are logged, we’ll edit the contributions and compile a script, then head into the studio to record and produce the audiobook,” the BBC Audiobooks America Blog said. “The final audiobook will be downloadable free on our Web site and also available as a digital download at iTunes and other audiobook retailers.”

Uhmm, I’m not sure what this will result to, but considering the mishmash of 140-character ideas of a thousand people? I’m pretty sure this’ll be interesting. 😉

Kudos to Mr. Neil Gaiman for cooking up such a unique idea! 🙂
