    All 140 characters (including spaces) of it! LOL! I submitted to a horror Twitterzine, and they paid a whole dollar for a one sentence "story". Has anybody else heard of these things?

      If you want details, here are their submission guidelines.

      They pay a dollar, by paypal, on acceptance. Their motto is "Scare us in 140 characters, or less."

      It was actually kind of fun, and I can see it becoming an addiction!

    Thanks for all the congrats, guys. I thought it was kind of funny that they pay a dollar, and they call 140 characters a story. Mine reads more like a caption from a Far Side comic.
