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?
BT - You sold something woot lol
No experience, sorry, though my daughter's been published a time or two for similar things
Cool, but never heard of it. Do you have more details/
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.
Way to go BT!
I remember my first sale ... trust me, it's a feeling that never goes away.
Congrats, and thanks for the info, BT! Sounds like fun. I'll probably give it a whirl one weekend.
That's fantanstic. May have to give it a try as well sometime.
BT, how awesome. I don't think I could do anything in just one sentence. I'm tooooo long winded.
Here is to many more dollars to come.
Thanks a lot, everyone! I guess mine gets published tomorrow. It's kind of silly, but I'm looking forward to seeing it.
Hey, B.T. I read you on espresso stories today to. Well done! I voted you up, natch!

I finally published my tenth (actually, more than ten as I'm up to number 11) hub and got what looks like a bronze medal. Woohoo! I wonder if my achieving this milestone is the reason I see fireworks outside my window?
