Tim Burton uses tweets to build story for Stainboy

For Tim Burton's most recent story, he went to Twitter for help. Using Cadavre Exquis, the technique of collective storytelling, from November 26th to December 6th, each day Burton asked people to tweet potential new lines to the story, based on the pick from the day before. And so the story was built, day by day tweet by tweet. The story of Stainboy is finally finished, and you can read it, in its entirety here.

We think it's pretty cool when people embrace social media, instead of just criticizing it, and turn it into something positive like art. See what happens when Stainboy discovers a mysterious green goo!
